Rosa Aurelia's story

Rosa Aurelia, 52, is married and has one dependent son. She lives in her own house with her husband and son. The house is located in Totoral Bajo, a rural community located thirty minutes from the agricultural district of Tambogrande. Her community is populated by humble people who want to improve. At the moment it already has electricity.

The activity she carries out is raising sheep, pigs and barnyard fowl to sell. She raises her animals in her back yard. When they develop sufficiently she sells them to area merchants and sometimes in the district market. She’s been in this business for about 7 years. In addition, together with her husband she owns a parcel of land where they have planted mangoes and corn. With income they both earn from these activities they support their family.

Rosa Aurelia wants to buy nutritionally balanced feed and grains at wholesale to improve her animals’ nutrition; she also wants to make improvements to her corrals. With this investment her animals will develop better and will be sold at a better price.

She has already had a loan financed through Kiva and with that support was able to increase her income since the animals she bought developed properly and were sold at a better price. Because of this she’s quite grateful to the people who collaborated with her on that occasion and also avails herself of this opportunity to thank those who will support her now in advance.
