La Esperanza Group's story

The "La Esperanza" [Hope] committee has ten members, all very hard-working, industrious women. They have shown their union and solidarity with each other. All of them are from the city of Villa Ygatimi; they are neighbors and friends from that city.

One of them is Otilia, who earns a living raising and selling farm animals, such as pigs and chickens. Through her work and efforts, she has been able to support her family and take care of her home; because of this, she never gets tired of working to get ahead. She says that sales of her animals are good, so she would like to continue this work.

Because of this, she is asking for the help of the foundation and Kiva to purchase young pigs to raise and then sell. She thanks the foundation and also Kiva for this opportunity.
