Drane is 44-years old and married. She has five children ranging in age from 23 to 13-years old and all of them attend school. She has been the sole financial support for the family for the past five years. It hasn’t been easy at all for Drane, yet, the profits she has made somehow makes up for all her struggles, she claims. Through it, she has been able to feed her family.

Drane has been in the livestock business for the past five years and is now planning to buy more cows to increase the milk production. This is the reason she is requesting a Kiva loan in the hopes that she will get financial help from lenders. For this, she thanks them all in advance.
