A loan of $775 helped to buy chickens, guinea pigs, and feed for her farm animals.

Luisa's story

Luisa is a member of the communal bank "Las Triunfadoras" [The Winners] from the district of Andahuaylillas, within the Quispicanchis province of Cusco, Perú. She is a very hard worker and continues to breed smaller animals, such as guinea pigs, chickens, and pigs.

Luisa will use this loan to buy chickens and guinea pigs, as well as animal feed, such as fodder, alfalfa and "sutuche" [a corn-based feed for pigs] for her animals. Luisa wishes to provide her children with a better education, which is why she makes sacrifices. She is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to strengthen her trade so that she can support her household.
