Loans in Ica!

Please join the portfolio team in welcoming Kiva's newest partner, the Caja Rural Señor de Luren, to the Kiva platform! Based in Ica, Peru, this new partner operates in a region whose infrastructure and economic foundations were largely destroyed after a major earthquake shook the region in August 2007. They are serving an area of great economic need with credit and savings services as residents look to rebuild their lives, homes and economic livelihoods.

Caja Luren will be using their Kiva funding to pass on added savings to their borrowers in the form of reduced interest rates. To read more about their great work, and also their plans for their Kiva borrowers, check out this blog post written by Kiva Fellow Josh Wilcox.

Welcome to the Kiva family, Caja Rural Señor de Luren!
