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).

A loan of $4,525 helped a member to purchase women's perfume for her business.


Señor De Los Milagros Group's story

These partners are members of the community bank "Señor de Los Milagros" ["God of Miracles"]. This communal bank is located in the Cusco district in the Cusco province of the department of Cusco.

One partner is Fanny who is single and 18 years old. She alternates her daily activities between her business, where she independently sells cosmetics such as perfumes, colognes and creams, among other things, to all her family and friends; and simultaneously she is studying the field of accounting at one of the schools in the city, which will be her form of getting ahead.

Fanny requests a loan to purchase women's perfumes for her business. Fanny thanks those who support this dream through this loan and promises to make her repayments on time.

The other partners make their living through clothing sales, restaurants, recycling, selling food, and selling meat and "pejerrey" [a type of fish].

In this group: Julia , Ermelinda , Ruben, Ana Flavia , Fanny , Delia , Sebastiana , Antonia, Grisca , Jackeline
