Family farms in different parts of the world are located in an area close to the house, producing a variety of animal husbandry that are intended for family and commercial food. The sale of these helps to improve the family's income and quality of life.

Dominga did not attend school, but with perseverance she is achieving success. She lives with her husband and 3 children (5 to 14). Thanks to the income she gets from these businesses, Dominga can provide education for your children.

She is requesting the 4th Kiva loan to invest in both businesses. Dominga will buy more chickens and multicolored thread.
