A loan of $1,500 helped to build a shed for her cows.

Asunta's story

Asunta is 41 years old and is married to Sergio Alba. They have three children who are studying in a school in the same area where they live. Asunta has suffered a lot as a child; her father abandoned her and her mother, and her single-mother managed to get them ahead. Now Asunta is the one who takes care of her mother and she cares for her very much. Asunta and her family live in the community of Maica in the city of Cochabamba. Thanks to her work and her husband’s help they have a house where they can live. The main business is the production of raw milk. The product is delivered to a company that produces dairy products and her husband provides mechanical services.

The loan is to build a shed to house livestock because in the rainy season the cattle suffer a lot. This will help them a lot with the comfort and the best care of the livestock. This is the third Kiva loan being given and Asunta says she is very happy as this helps a lot in conducting her business. Among her dreams and goals is to continue taking care of her mother until the time of her death and that her children study for a career so that they can have a better standard of living.
