Alcira's story

29-year old Alcira is married and lives with her family in the small village of Corral de Arena in the Olmos district. It is an agricultural area with a lot of commercial activity, located in the province of Lambayeque over an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo. Alcira raises sheep and goats near her home and then sells them. She feeds them with local grasses, and when they have reached a good size, she sells them to businessmen who frequently visit the area. In addition, Alcira has a motortaxi. She wishes to obtain more livestock and nutritionally balanced food so that she can sell the animals for a good price. Then she can expand her business and earn more money. For this reason she thought it was a good time to approach Kiva partner Edpyme Alternativa to ask for a loan of 1500 soles to help her reach her goal. Alcira is a hardworking, diligent mother admired by those who know her for her desire to get ahead in life.
