A loan of $775 helped to buy a cow.

Liz Yesica's story

Liz is a woman of 23. She lives in the city of Cañete in Imperial district, with her parents and small three-year-old son, whom she loves and is her main reason for living. She is a very friendly, hard-working, enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed.

Unfortunately, Liz has not been able to pursue a career as a professional, as from a young age she began to work in order to help her mother raise their livestock. With a great deal of effort and dedication, and thanks to her mother's support, Liz raises livestock. She has five breeding cows and two calves that she feeds and looks after with a great deal of dedication. She also sells milk.

Liz is happy doing her work and believes that it is going well because she is very responsible. Liz is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help offered, she will be able to purchase a cow. In this way, Liz hopes to be able to increase her herd of cattle, and in a short time wishes to be able to have a large cow shed.

Liz hopes to be able to achieve her dream of having her own house, and being able to provide the necessary education so that someday her small son can be a fine professional.
