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).

The Huamanguina Bank started its first cycle with 15 members, and many live in the same neighborhood.

The members need different loan amounts such as 300.00 Peruvian soles, 600 soles, etc., totaling 7,800.00 Peruvian soles worth of loans to the cooperative bank.
