Our Sixteenth Kiva Diva: Maria in Bolivia (July 2015)

Our Sixteenth Kiva Entrepreneur - Maria in Bolivia - July 2015

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.




Today we’re celebrating our fifteenth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship!

This month we’re celebrating our sixteenth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship by helping Maria, a widow in Bolivia, who is living with her son. While she retired, she’s wants to open a restaurant and start a new business, and we were excited to have the chance to help her with that adventure!

While she retired, she’s wants to open a restaurant and start a new business, and we were excited to have the chance to help her with that adventure!

Maria is a widow and lives in her son’s house in the area of Miraflores in the city of La Paz. Currently, she works for a life insurance company as a promoter, and she also receives retired income. With these two activities, she maintains and covers her minimal necessities.

With our July “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship we’re helping Maria lift herself up and into an adventure, helping her start that new business, opening a restaurant.

She still needs a little more help!
