A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a dairy cow.


Felisa's story

Felisa’s married and has no children. She lives in her own house occupying a room with brick walls and dirt floor. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Río Abajo zone. She currently earns income selling milk and working in agriculture. She covers her family’s basic utility payments and food costs because her husband is a merchant and travels constantly and but only sends her a little money at the end of each month.

She needs the loan to buy a dairy cow because she wants to increase milk production and as a result, increase income too. Felisa’s dream is to build her house and increase her herd size. This is her second IMPORT loan request and second with KIVA. She used to work selling food but now prefers doing her new activity.
