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).

Mujeres Unidas 4 Group's story

Jesuita is the group coordinator for Mujeres Unidas (United Women) 4. This group is located in Hato Mayor, a rural area in the Dominican Republic. Jesuita lives with her long-term partner and her four children in a simple home in the rural village of Hato Mayor, where the cacao harvest is one of the main economic activities.

Jesuita is an excellent Esperanza client and has successfully repaid fourteen loans. With this loan, her fifteenth, she plans to buy fruit and cacao, which she sells in her community and to chocolate producers. Using the proceeds from her business, she has been able to provide for her family and make changes to her home structure. Her dream for the future is to continue to educate her children and make improvements to her house. Jesuita thanks you for your support in helping her achieve her goals!

In this group: Jesuita, Antonio, Marina, Magalis, Maria
