Kiva Lending Team: Adventures with the Estrogen Army
We loan because...
We want to give people a chance to become self-sufficient and live an honourable life. We believe that a hand up is better than a hand out, and that it needs to be both transparent and accountable. We believe that planting many seeds of uplift in small and meaningful ways helps people become self-sustaining and strengthens both the economic and social fabric of communities. Micro-lending is the most direct and personal form of uplift and has the capacity for constant renewal.
"Adventures with the Estrogen Army" is a project for and by ordinary women who want to create extraordinary adventures. In doing so we are committed to giving a hand up to our sister adventure divas around the world who are working to lift themselves up out of poverty and violence. Kiva is one of the ways we choose to do this, and to give back.

Lucia received a loan from Kate which helps start a mobile flower shop. I plan to buy a cart, buckets, packing materials and my first inventory from the flower markets.
