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).

Amanecer De Los Inkas Group's story

These borrowers belong to the communal bank "AMANECER DE LOS INKAS" which is located in the district, province and department of Cusco.

Estefania (the one with her hand up) is 53 years old, married and has nine children. She runs a grocery store from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. selling essential goods such as rice, sugar, milk, and oil. In her free time she enjoys going out for walks. Her goal is to expand her grocery store and she is requesting a loan to buy rice, sugar, milk and cookies.

The person with her face covered in the photo is no longer with the communal bank. The other members are involved in activities such as vegetable sales, beauty product sales, grocery store business and food sales.

Estefania is grateful to the lenders helping her and is committed to paying back the loan on time.
