A loan helped to buy a press to make cheese, and a centrifuge cream separator.


Reina De Jesús's story

Reina is 41 years old. She lives with her life companion, who is a farmer, and with their children who are in school.

Reina has worked selling dairy products for six years. She learned this work from her parents. She buys the milk and then processes it in her house to sell the finished product, such as cheese, cream, cottage cheese, etc.

She will use this loan to buy a press to make cheese and to buy a centrifuge cream separator, which will help to make her work easier. Her previous Kiva loan was also used for her business and she has finished repaying it.

She aspires to improve her house and to repay this new loan punctually.
