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 $2,250 helped a member to buy animals to raise and sell.

San Sebastian Group's story

The group called “San Sebastian” is in its first loan cycle. The members are working together and trying to promote their work as a team. They are from a remote rural village called Villa Ygatimi, a very modest area that has limited access to certain basic services. For this reason, Fundación Paraguaya has chosen to give them this opportunity.

One of the members is Sra. Estela. She is requesting a loan in order to invest in the purchase of animals that she can raise at home for consumption, as well as to sell. Her main occupation is raising and selling farm animals. Through continuous work and effort, she knows that she can make great improvement.

In this group: Martina, Estela, Ramona, Mariza, Blasida, Carolina, Mirta, Gorgonia, Claudelina, Daicy, Hermelinda, Perla, Casilda
