A loan of $200 helped to buy corn, flour, oil, butter, sugar, salt, and two medium-sized pigs.

Ernestina Guadalupe's story

Ernestina would like a new loan because since the first time that Kiva offered her a loan, her finances and family life have improved. This allows her to buy corn, flour, oil, butter, sugar and salt among other products that she needs to make quesadillas and sell them, and also buy two medium-sized pigs to raise them and then sell them.

The previous loan helped her to acquire pigs, which she later sold and this alone has generated earnings to pay back the loan. She has also been able to offer daily meals to her family and her children continue to study. The family is in the same group, but has optimized their standard of living.
