but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase pigs, wood, zinc sheeting, nails, etc.

Los Araditos Group's story

Esmirna is 30 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She belongs to Los Araditos solidarity group with Estelvina, Sandis and Nolvia.

At the age of nineteen, she began in the world of business buying and selling pigs. She also sells eggs from barnyard chickens, businesses which she continues doing to date. She began the business with her own funds with savings from the work she did in the tobacco sector.

She again asks for a FUNDENUSE loan, with Kiva funds, to purchase pigs and to build a pen because, with the previous loan, she was only able to purchase the pigs to be able to maintain the business since her sales dropped due to the COVID pandemic.

She is very grateful to the Kiva investors for helping her to continue working with dignity. She has as a future goal to purchase land and to establish her own pig farm.
