Our Ninth Kiva Diva: Ivone in Mozambique (December 2014)

Our Ninth Kiva Diva - Ivone in Mozambique - December 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.

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

We’re helping 49 year old widow, Ivone, expand her home in Mozambique to improve living conditions for her 2 children and 2 grandchildren, and move closer to her dream of a new business with our December “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship.

This month we’re celebrating our ninth “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship by helping a 49-year-old widow who dreams of launching a new business.

Ivone has two children, both who live with her. She is also responsible for two grandchildren.

She makes her living through the business she started in 2005, selling door to door every day, and making deliveries to her customers.

We’re helping Ivone buy building materials (cement, rebar, and beams) so she can expand her home and offer her family a more comfortable life with our December “Adventures with the Estrogen Army” Kiva sponsorship.

Her biggest dream is to build a house to rent out, and she still needs a little more help!
