Las Morenitas Group's story

Paula is 25 years old, and is in a civil union with two daughters, one of whom is in preschool. Paula makes a living selling sheep, and is requesting this loan in order to buy ground up grass to feed her sheep. She started her sheep sales business with a small amount of money that she had, and her business is very important to her, since it allows her to generate some income. She loves watching sheep be born, and then grow over time. Consequentially, as her sheep grow, her business has also grown. She raises sheep and fattens them up, and she uses the money she earns from sales to purchase more sheep, as well as grass and feed for her animals.

She is planning to buy pigs for raising and eventual resale in hopes of generating income and profits. Her business has helped her family with their financial situation, and she is happy that this loan will help her to continue to grow her business. Her dreams and hopes are to purchase her own land to build a house on, and to provide her daughters with a good education. The members of the group would like to thank Kiva and Vision Fund for the loans, their confidence in the group, and for helping the group members grow their respective businesses.
