A loan of $975 helped to buy cow's milk for the production of cheese and yogurt.


Ricarda's story

Ricarda, now 44, is married and has four children. She lives in the Tambo Real district. She still works producing dairy products like cheese and yogurt. She also works raising small animals like guinea pigs and chickens and growing crops like potatoes and corn. She needs to make more cheese and yogurt, so she will invest her loan in milk to make them.

Ricarda is very thankful to Kiva for helping her develop her business and she promises to make her payments on time. She belongs to the communal bank "San Bartolo de Tambo Real", in the Tambo Real District, Anta Province, in Cusco, Peru. She wants to provide a better life and better education for her children, and she sacrifices for them. This is why she hopes to work a lot and save to invest in their education.
