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).

Sagrada Familia Group's story

Sagrada Familia Communal Bank is beginning its first loan cycle. Each member has a different job. They are very hardworking in the community. The women seemed to be very happy to have this program in the community because it will be a big help to them.

Ramona's one of the members of this group. She earns a living in sales. She has a small grocery store where she works every day from a very early hour. She says she has very good customers because her business is always well stocked.

She's requesting this loan to invest in buying fruits, vegetables, meat, cold cuts, and other products so she can continue with her sales and giving her customers what they need.

In this group: Sara, Analia, Delcy, Sebastiana, Teofila, Delia, Ramona, Francisca, Mari, Maura, Bernardina, Nelida, Maria*
