Primitiva
Primitiva is 37 years old and married to Sergio, with whom she has two children. They all live together in a home they own. "I am happy to be able to continue with my goals (with) a firm step," she says contently. Primitiva's main job is buying and selling small animals like pigs, chickens, sheep and guinea pigs, which she fattens and then resells at the central market in the city of Tarma. But a year ago she bought a car to offer transportation services. Primitiva has seen very good results in this business because, as she mentions, there is limited access to the faraway villages outside of town, from where the majority of the inhabitants need to travel to purchase food, sell their crops or carry out work. Therefore, she recently purchased another vehicle with which she is making more profits, but she continues to save since the new acquisition left her without any capital. This is her sixth loan cycle with Kiva, and she is grateful for the financial support to help her make progress with her business. She promises to make her payments on time. With the loan, Primitiva plans to purchase various small animals to continue her livestock business.

Primitiva, de 37 años, está casada con Sergio, su esposo. Ambos tienen 2 hijos con quienes viven en su casa propia. “Me siento feliz de poder continuar con mis objetivos, a paso firme”, afirma muy contenta. El principal trabajo de Primitiva, es la compra y venta de animales menores como: cerdos, gallinas, ovejas y cuyes, los que engorda para luego revenderlos en el mercado central de la ciudad de Tarma. Pero hace un año, compró un auto con el que realiza trasporte público; en esté negocio, Primitiva obtuvo muy buenos resultados, pues según menciona; existe poco acceso a los poblados lejanos de la localidad, donde la mayoría de sus habitantes necesita trasladarse a la ciudad para comprar víveres, comestibles y negociar sus cultivos y demás trabajos independientes que realizan. Por ello, hace poco concretó la compra de una movilidad más, con el que está adquiriendo más ganancias, pero continúa ahorrando ya que se quedó sin capital de trabajo por su nueva adquisición. Este es su sexto crédito con KIVA, por lo que agradece el apoyo financiero otorgado, este le ayudará en el progreso de su negocio. Además promete ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas. Primitiva; invertirá los S/.1000 soles en la compra de varios animales menores para continuar con su negocio.
