Dionicia
Dionicia is a hard-working 52-year-old woman. She has lived with her husband Gumercindo for the past 34 years. Together, they have seven children whom she loves very much, but only five live with them in their home located in Auray. Dionicia makes a living raising animals like sheep, cattle and alpacas at altitude. "I take care of them myself, doing everything necessary so they can live for a period of time," she says. She confesses she enjoys the alpacas most of all, which she sells at the trade fairs in the city of Huancavelica, offering them at good prices. Sometimes she even enters them in animal competitions and wins on a lot of occasions. Her husband helps to care for the animals so she can keep participating and winning prizes. She manages a good amount of capital with the winnings - and always practices discipline so that the capital doesn't deteriorate - and uses it exclusively on the alpacas, which are her specialty. Now she wants to increase her income so she can work more comfortably. Dionicia belongs to the "San Fernando" loan group, and this is her 15th loan with Kiva partner MFP. She feels happy because she found the help she so needed to reach her goals. As she is responsible for all her work, she promises to be punctual with her payments. Upon receiving your support, Dionicia plans to invest the loan in the purchase of animals like alpacas and sheep, since during this time of year they are less expensive.
