Kiva Lending Team: PeruFund - Carmela del Carpio Zavala
We loan because...
Even all the way back to Inca times, the Mita system, or public service allowed Peruvians to build communal facilities, such structures like Machu Picchu and the Inca Trail system than runs all the way from Ecuador to Argentina.
This is why we would like to support Peruvian entrepreneurship groups, specially women, to empower them and to promote the century long tradition of working along neighbors to reach common goals.
In memory of Carmela del Carpio Zavala, who's life long generosity, continuous sacrifice, example and determination helped many people in Arequipa, Peru.
She was a resourceful, entrepreneurial, hard working and honest woman, wife and mother, just like hundreds of thousands of Peruvian mothers who everyday struggle to provide for a better life to their children in the hardest conditions no matter what.
Everyone who is interested in seeing Peru become an example of sustainable and collaborative development, PLEASE SUPPORT THIS TEAM. Many emerging countries can learn from the Peruvian tradition of entrepreneurship and community work!
