Aida Marina's story

Aida Marina lives in Valle Hermosa, a parish in the town of Santo Domingo. It is a productive valley with a warm, humid climate; it is also well known for tourism. Aida Marina lives with her husband who works as a guard in a company located nearby. She earns her living raising pigs and has several well-run pig styes. Thanks to this business Aida has been able to provide her children with an education and help her family get ahead. With help from her husband she has also been able to acquire land where they have built their simple home. Aida now needs to build more pig styes and buy more piglets so she has approached Fundación Alternativa where she is a faithful client. She has had previous loans with Kiva. She is very grateful for the help she has received over the years. With this investment she is sure that her income will increase and she will be able to continue growing as a small businesswoman.
