Francisca's story

Señora Francisca is a member of the communal bank "Las Triunfadoras" from the district of Andahuaylillas in the province of Quispicanchis of Cusco, Perú. The member continues on in the business of buying and selling products for recycling, like plastic bottles and containers, in addition to also continuing to make a living by raising small animals like guinea pigs and hens, which she acquires to fatten and then later sell in the different markets in her community.

In this opportunity Francisca needs the loan in order to buy hens, chickens, and guinea pigs in addition to feed for them, and in this way capitalize on her commerce. Francisca is very grateful to Kiva for allowing her to continue with her economic activity and with this job bring sustenance home.
