Lucia's story

Lucia is 36 and lives in a rented home with her husband and four children. She works in agriculture and decided to buy an incubator and eggs a short time ago to raise chickens and start a new business. Lucia has taken this initiative to enter a new field on her own; she is looking for a better income for her family and to improve her quality of life. However, her husband gave her the capital to buy the incubator and eggs. When they started living in their current location, they had a lot of economic problems since they had invested everything in the purchase of land. However, thanks to the united effort of the whole family, they were able to get ahead. This is her first loan on Kiva, and she is very grateful for this economic support. It will help her to increase her income. With the requested 1000 soles, she will buy eggs wholesale to incubate and increase her production.
