Juana
Juana is an unpretentious 42-year-old woman. She lives with her husband Ignacio and their four children, whom she cares for in her parents' house.

Juana's economic activity is centered around raising animals like cows and bulls. "I also have sheep, but in smaller numbers; they are for personal consumption," she explains. She already has 20 years of experience in this business, which intensified when she started her family. Her work consists of buying and breeding the animals, which she then raises and fattens for an average of six months until they reach maturity; then she sells them in the market that takes place on Sundays in her city. Her work is very demanding, because she has to grow alfalfa to feed them and take care of them, especially the cows and bulls, "...but I have my children's help," she says.

Now, Juana is planning to increase her livestock, so she bought a breeding bull. In addition, she is starting to plant peas, as she already has the fields prepared. This is her first loan with Kiva, and she feels grateful for the financial support that she is receiving so that she can progress. In addition, she promises to make her payments punctually.

Juana will invest the 3,500 soles (PEN) in the purchase of organic soil amendments to fertilize her crops and produce feed for her animals.
