Luz America's story

Luz is a humble country woman with a good-natured, supportive personality. She has worked for the better part of her life raising animals such as cattle, pigs, chickens, and guinea pigs. In this way, she has managed to support her husband with some money for their home.

Luz feels very grateful with the support she has received from the Kiva organization, because through that support she has increased the number of animals she has, which has improved her income.

She wants to continue getting support, so she is asking for help to buy heifers, vitamins, balanced feed, salt, and molasses. In this way she can take good care of her animals, hoping to get a good price in the market when it’s time to sell them.
