Heraclia
Heraclia is a 55 year old, unmarried woman. She lives with her five children, and is responsible for the care and education of only two of them. They have lived in a house in the community for ten years. In her fifteen years of experience in farming, she achieved all the goals that she put her mind to, despite having only completed primary school. She began working in a research center at one of the oldest universities in the country. There, she makes a range of dairy products such as cheese, yogurt, blancmange and its variants. She also helps breed pedigree sheep since she is knowledgeable about the climate and the grass that grows in the area. She receives a substantial salary for her work and this allows her to have a comfortable life. In addition, she buys and sells animals such as chickens, guinea pigs, and sheep, which she tends to with great care. “I sow the grass that they have to eat” Heraclia says, “because they have to eat well”. Now, she has many orders for guinea pigs. In the nation’s capital, on patriotic holidays, there is a great demand for the meat of this animal. This is her fourth loan with Kiva and she feels very grateful for the financial support she has received to move forward. Herclia will invest the requested funds in the purchase of more guinea pigs because she has many orders for this season.
