Vanessa's story

18-year old Vanessa B. A. is married but doesn’t have any children. She lives with her husband. The loan she is asking for will be used to buy cattle to fatten and food for them to eat. She wants to raise them well in order to obtain the best price possible when it comes time to sell them. Vanessa and her husband also want to increase the number of animals and provide better living conditions for them. She owns a field which is ideal for raising cattle. This is the first time that Vanessa is asking for a loan from Kiva partner FUDESCOR, and she is very happy with the terms that are offered. She hopes to provide a better quality of life for her family in the future, better financial stability, and she also hopes to continue growing as a person and livestock farmer.
