A loan of $600 helped to buy animals (pigs, cows, and lambs, among others) and animal feed.

Hugo Miguel's story

Hugo, 38, lives in the warm and lively city of Chincha. Hugo has been hard-working since he was young, since his parents had few economic resources and he needed to support them. This is why he was only able to finish the fifth year of secondary school, but he would like to have gotten a university degree. Every day, Hugo works in his small business buying and selling cattle and pigs. Every morning, he gets up very early to feed his animals and clean the space where he raises them. He believes things are going well for him in his business because he is very dedicated and above all, he likes what he does.

Hugo is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, because thanks to the help that they have given him, he will be able to buy animals like cows, pigs, and lambs, among others. He will also buy feed. This way, he will be able to increase his income and keep fighting to make his greatest dream a reality: "To build his parents a house out of quality materials since they currently live in an adobe house."
