Our First Kiva Diva: Peace in Uganda (April 2014)

Our First Kiva Diva - Peace in Uganda - April 2014

Kiva is a crowd-funding site supporting entrepreneurs in developing countries. Through the Estrogen Army project we will be investing in women who would otherwise have a difficult time accessing traditional loans to fund their own adventures.




We’re celebrating our very first “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship!

Peace is a 45-year-old lady with 7 children, four who attend school. She operates a piggery project, which is her main source of income. She is a widow and is responsible for all the financial needs of her family.


This month we are investing in “Peace”.

She is a widowed mother of 7 children in Uganda, and we’re helping her finish building her house.

She still needs a little more help: http://kiva.org/lend/691281


Want to help us create a little more uplift for women?

We welcome you to join our lending team at Kiva …

If you’re not a Kiva lender yet, you can invest in entrepreneurs in developing countries for as little as $25. Click the link below for an invitation:

Namaste,
