Maria Margarita
Maria is 26 years old and married. She lives in her own home together with her spouse and 2 young children in a small village located 20 minutes from the city of Mórrope, a district populated by humble and hardworking farmers. It is located in the province of Lambayeque, more than 40 minutes from the city of Chiclayo.

She raises and sells small animals, which she sells every 15 days after they've reached a good size and weight. Maria raises her animals in pens behind her home. She also creates additional income by selling fish, walking through her neighborhood and the surrounding ones. She wants to invest her credit in buying feed for her animals and fish to sell. For this reason, she has asked for a loan of 1500 nuevos soles. This is the second loan that Maria has asked for from the Kiva lenders. She paid off the first and made her payments punctually. She thanks the Kiva lenders for support in growing her businesses, which help sustain her family.

Maria tiene 26 años y es casada. Vive en casa propia junto a su esposo y dos hijos menores en un pequeño caserio ubicado a 20 minutos de la ciudad de Mórrope, un distrito poblado por gente humilde y trabajadora que se dedica a la agricultura. Se encuentra ubicado en la provincia de Lambayeque, a más de cuarenta minutos de la ciudad de Chiclayo. Se dedica a la crianza y venta de animales menores, los cuales vende quincenalmente después de que ellos hayan alcanzado un buen tamaño y peso. Maria cría sus animales en corrales ubicados en la parte posterior de su domicilio. Adicionalmente, genera ingresos adicionales vendiendo pescado de forma ambulante el cual reparte en su caserio y alrededores. Desea invertir su crédito en la compra de alimento para sus animales y en pescado para vender. Por ello, ha creido conveniente solicitar un préstamo de 1500 nuevos soles. Este es el segundo préstamo que Maria ha solicitado de los prestamistas de Kiva. Canceló el primero y pagó sus cuotas de manera puntual. Agradece a los prestamistas de Kiva por su apoyo en crecer sus negocios, los que la ayuda sostener a su familia.
