María Anastacia's story

María Anastacia is 39 years old; she is separated and has three children who depend on her. She lives in the Sialupe Baca neighborhood, a rural area some 10 minutes from the city of Lambayeque. It is a very humble area and its inhabitants are mostly in the agricultural field.

María works breeding, buying and selling animals. She breeds sheep, pigs and fowl that are fed with processed food, grains and pastures. María cares for her animals in yards outside of her home made of adobe. She sells her animals every two weeks to some sellers who visit her home frequently.

María needs a loan of 2500 nuevos soles from Edpyme Alternatva, to buy more animals as well as feed to increase her sales during the Christmas season which is when sales typically increase. This is her fist loan with Kiva and is anticipatorily grateful to the people who help her reach her goals.
