A loan of $1,575 helped to buy more feed for her pigs and calves.

Neliberta's story

Neliberta lives in a very calm community where corn is the main crop that is grown and there are many friendly people. Neliberta, 48, is a very smiling person. She has been married to Alejandro for 29 years. Together they have made a family with their four children, who are studying.

Neliberta has been raising oxen and pigs for two years. She started this business because she wanted to help her husband with their home expenses and their children's school expenses. She had also noticed, since she was a young girl, that the majority of people in her community had animals to sell. Neliberta has applied for another loan from this institution to buy more feed for the pigs and calves which she has at home. She says that she has not sold any of her animals, which is why she still has not earned an income, because she would like to raise many animals in order to sell them when she really needs the money.

She is very pleased because thanks to her previous loan, the number of pigs and oxen she owns has increased little by little. The only difficulty which she has now is the lack of space for her pigs, but she hopes to sell some soon so that the others are more comfortable and do not have any problems. Neliberta says, "I have not sold any animals because I want to save for my children to graduate. I have always supported them so they can achieve their dreams, and I wouldn't like them to leave halfway through." Neliberta is very happy and grateful for this loan with which VisionFund and Kiva have once again entrusted her.
