A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy cracked corn and animal food for her pigs.


Huexca Santa Cruz Group's story

The members of the group are continuing with their businesses. Eliza is 54 and lives with her partner. She has 10 children - 8 girls and 2 boys - with just one of her daughters studying at CBTA. Eliza rears pigs, chickens and turkeys to sell. She asked for a loan to buy cracked corn and animal food. She started her business 20 years ago out of necessity and lack of money. Her business is important as it brings in money for her daughter's education. She likes to keep animals to sell and she has already made money from this. Her business is popular because the majority of her community rears pigs and turkeys. Her partner and two of her daughters help her to feed the pigs. She uses her earnings to purchase things that they need around the house and for her daughter's education. Her hope and dream is to sell some pigs and to hold a graduation party for her daughter.

She is very happy that she is going to get this loan. She is going to buy food for her animals to fatten them up and get them ready for sale.

The members of the group want to say to Kiva and to Fundación Realidad “thank you for your loans, they offer us help and support for our businesses and our families to grow".
