A loan of $600 helped to buy guinea pigs and chickens.


Luzveña's story

The borrower is Luzveña, and she belongs to the communal bank "Las Triunfadoras" in the Andahuaylillas district in the province of Quispicanchis Cusco-Perú. She is a hard-working and enterprising young woman, and continues to make a living growing and selling small animals, like guinea pigs and chickens. She sells them at the markets in Cusco. Luzveña has been making a living in this business for some time. With the income that she can generate, she is saving so that she can study. For this opportunity, she is asking for a loan to buy more barnyard animals, like guinea pigs and chickens. Luzveña is satisfied with the fruit of her work and sacrifice and she is therefore thankful to KIVA for always helping her in strengthening her economic activity and with her academic projects.
