A loan of $925 helped to buy cattle.


Alba Lorena's story

Alba Lorena is 42 years old and from the town of El Sauce. She is married and has two children, ages 19 and 9, who are studying. Alba sells cattle and milk. Her business is located at her home where she has been in operation for the past 22 years. She learned this trade from her father and now her husband helps with moving the business forward so that they can live a decent life and help their children get ahead.


Alba Lorena’s routine consists of traveling to the surrounding communities three times a week to buy live cattle and to also make sales. She also sells milk from her home during the early morning hours. With her previous loans, Alba demonstrated responsibility by paying on time and according to the terms.


The loan she is requesting will be invested as operating capital so that she can buy cattle being offered at a good price. Alba Lorena is grateful for the assistance that Kiva lenders provide to small businesspeople from poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have a decent life.
