Hilola's story

Hilola is a conscientious, goal oriented and hard working woman. She is 33 years old. She was born in the country side where the climate is supportive of raising cattle and growing many kinds of crops. Hilola's family was poor and she has helped her parents take care of animals and crops since early childhood. Her life has always been hard because her family was so poor. After finishing high school Hilola married and started helping her husband to raise animals and farm. They primarily raise meat cattle by purchasing smaller animals at the livestock market, fattening them then selling the animals with a profits after a certain time. Due to bad weather their cattle business was not successful and Hilola's husband went to Russia to find work. Before he left Hilola's family lived only from their livestock earnings. After her husband left Hilola continued raising animals and now fattens the animals using the feed she grows herself. Last year Hilola's husband returned from Russia to help his wife take care of the cattle. Now he wants to go back to Russia for work. Hilola has turned to Kiva for a loan so that she can purchase airfare for her husband. She herself will continue raising cattle at home. Hilola hopes for your charity and kindness.
