A loan helped to purchase and sell livestock.


Martha Cecilia's story

Cecilia is 28 years old, married, and her husband is a day laborer who doesn't make enough to support the household. His wife has been buying and selling livestock for 4 years, and this has been Cecilia's only source of income.

She's applying for a loan to invest in her small business, to boost the number of livestock so that she'll make a bigger profit when the time comes to sell them. This way she'll be able to keep investing in her business and help her husband with their humble household's expenses.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Manolo Rodriguez.


This loan is special because:

It aims to reach vulnerable refugee populations in an isolated region.
