A loan of $600 helped to purchase hens and guinea pigs.

Victoria's story

Victoria is a member of the “Reyna de los Angeles” community bank in Urubamba province in Cusco – Peru. She works in the production and wholesaling of vegetables, such beans and greens, and distributes them to markets in the region. She also raises and sells small animals, like guinea pigs and hens. In this loan cycle, Victoria will invest her funds in buying hens and guinea pigs, which she will fatten and then sell in the market. These activities are very common in this part of the region because of the climate of Urubamba is good for growing and cultivating vegetables and small animals.

In this opportunity, Victoria will use the loan to purchase hens and guinea pigs to increase her production and satisfy the demand of her clients.

Victoria is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to give a better quality of life to her family since with these activities she can educate her children who are independent adults, and help them grow and strengthen their activities.
