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 $3,025 helped a member to buy vegetables.

Las Maravillas Group's story

The “Las Maravillas” communal bank is made up of eight members who are ready to continue working well. Gregoria is a widow, with five children, two of whom are still dependent on her. She sells vegetables door to door. At 49 years old she has been able to improve her economic situation. Her last loan was used to buy vegetables to offer to her customers. Her main desire is to have her own sales location to sell her vegetables.

The “Las Maravillas” communal bank members are grateful to the people who make this loan possible and allow them to progress. Gregoria is sitting in the photo, the first person on the left side, wearing a black shirt.

In this group: Alejandra Maura, Edith Carmen, Gregoria, Misael Adelaida, Maria Luisa, Maria Elena, Eudes, Jesus Constantino
