Filomena's story

Filomena is 37 years old and married, with three children. She has a livestock business that she started in 2015, and sells chickens to generate income to support her family. Running her livestock business has made Filomena independent because she can be responsible for herself and also provide a better life for her family.

She would like a loan of $700 from Kiva to help grow her livestock business. She plans to buy chicken s for her livestock business. Filomena hopes to run a bigger business in the future and wants to thank lenders for the opportunity.
