Maria Consuelo's story

María Consuelo is 31 years old and married with four children. She lives in northern Peru with her husband and children in the rural area of the Tambogrande District, Piura Province.

María raises sheep, poultry and pigs in a place close to her house. She fattens them with balanced feed and when they have reached an adequate level of development, she sells them to her neighbors and to the merchants who come to her place. This business activity allows her to help her family with the daily expenses.

María has also developed a passion for farming and she primarily grows lemons. She harvests the lemons and then sells them to her neighbors. They buy her products because of the reliability and good quality. María always works hard to be able to get her family ahead.

María has successfully repaid a previous Kiva-funded loan, and this will be her second. She plans to use this loan to buy more balanced feed for her livestock, as well as fertilizers for her lemon crop. She has proven to be a responsible person who knows her business well and wants to take advantage of potential opportunities in her area of work.
