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).

Nueva Union Group's story

The group called “Nueva Unión” (New Union) is in cycle one in the committee program; they are learning to work together and carry out activities to boost their team spirit. They are taking the poverty elimination survey which they all see as a growth opportunity and a way to help their families.

Marta is part of this group. She has a fruit shop where she sells fruit and vegetables in general. What needs to be pointed out is the great desire she has to be able to gradually grow and improve her and her family’s life every day. She strives also to be able to give her customers what they ask for to grow that way.

Marta is requesting this loan to buy fruit and vegetables in general to better stock her fruit shop which will help her realize her business plan that will help her improve her income.

In this group: Maria, Felipa, Maria, Ilda, Emilia, Elisa, Emiliana, Romina, Sady, Yanina, Cintya, Luciana*, Marta*
