Maria Estefana has a business buying and selling chickens. As a second activity, she raises and fattens cattle. This is her second loan with Kiva.
She was very responsible with her previous loan, which she paid back on time without a single day of delay. She is applying for this loan because this is the period in which she raises chickens. It is summer, which is the best time to raise them.
Estefana sells her chickens in her town market. They are very marketable, which is why she would like to increase her production. She is applying for this loan to buy chickens and chicken feed for their care.
