Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

8 De Diciembre Group's story

This group is in its seventh loan cycle, and we can say that this group is very responsible. All of the members have businesses and are making headway thanks to all the effort they have put in as working mothers. Alejandra is a member of the group. She is above all very brave and eager to make progress. She makes a living collecting and buying/selling recyclables. She buys the items and then can sell them for a profit. Thanks to this work she is making headway and giving her family what it needs. She is proud of the work she does, since it is decent and, above all, honest work. She is requesting the loan to purchase plastics, bottles, bags, cardboard and other items to resell so she has a better profit margin and give her family what she can within her means.

In this group: Gloria, Virginia, Lucia, Sebastiana, Alejandra, Griselda, Maria, Crispina, Mariza, Narcisa, Patricia, Melchora, Martha, Ramona
