Zaida
Zaida, 30, is an unassuming woman who lives with her husband Flavio, with whom she has 3 children. She cares for her children in a home that the family has rented for 5 years. While her husband works cutting firewood to sell, she raises livestock. She has pigs, sheep and cows. Her work consists of fattening the animals in order to sell them at a better price. She uses the cows for milk, which she sells every day to the milkmen in the zone. In the morning she cares for her animals, and in the afternoon she goes out to her fields of potato, corn, and beans. These are planted in rented fields and in others from the Association, since her motto is "work without ceasing."

This is her second loan with Kiva. She is thankful for the opportunity to make progress, and she promises to be punctual in her payments. Zaida will invest this loan of 1,500 Peruvian soles in the purchase of more animals, including pigs and sheep, to increase her stock.
