A loan of $1,000 helps buy 4 heifers to raise.


Reina Del Carmen's story

Reina, age 54, doesn't have any education. She is in a relationship; her partner works in agriculture and fishing. Their children are grown.
Reina works in agriculture. She cultivates mainly corn, and helps her partner with his work. She also cares for livestock to sell.
She will use this loan to purchase 4 heifers to raise. She used her previous Kiva loan to keep working, and she is repaying the debt punctually.
She dreams of improving her family's lives and knows that she can achieve this because she is investing in her work little by little.
