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).

Esperanza Y Amor Group's story

The "Esperanza y Amor" group is new and made-up of seven hard-working women, who have various types of small businesses. Juana is 51 years old, single and has a 16-year-old daughter. Within the group, Juana is the secretary and she has a business selling vegetables and potatoes at the "Señor de los Milagros" market in Chosica. Years ago Juana used to work as a street vendor, selling children's clothes. Juana will use this loan to buy more vegetables and potatoes. Her biggest wish is for her daughter to study to be a professional. The group thanks Kiva lenders for this loan.

In this group: Maria Maura, Juana Lucia, Elsa Maria, Maria Rosa, Maria Elena, Margarita Lucila, Carmen Elva
