A loan helped to buy more pigs and invest in her grocery shop, buying items such as tinned foods, fizzy drinks, and staple goods.


Luisa Emilia's story

Luisa is 58 years old and has two children. She makes a living raising pigs and also has a grocery shop. She used her first loan to buy pigs, which she then sold for profit; she is grateful to Kiva for that loan.

Luisa is applying for another Kiva loan with MiCredito in order to buy more pigs and invest in her grocery shop, buying items such as tinned foods, fizzy drinks, and staple goods.

Luisa's goal for the future is to buy a plot of land to set up a pig farm.
