A loan of $1,350 helped to buy small farm animals like guinea pigs and chicks.

Felicitas's story

Felicitas, 65, is married and has five adult children. She raises small farm animals like chickens and guinea pigs to sell in her local provincial markets. Felicitas has been doing this for many years and has been able to raise her family this way; it now is her source of living income.

On this occasion, Felicitas is requesting a loan to buy guinea pigs and hens. She is very grateful to Kiva for helping her stay in business. Now she will be able to save and hopefully in a short period of time set up a stand in one of Cusco’s markets and thus make her business grow.

She commits to make her installment payments punctually. Felicitas is a member of the “Patrón Salvador del Mundo” communal bank in San Salvador District in Calca Province in Cusco, Peru.
