A loan of $375 helped to buy wholesale milk.

Thais's story

Thais, 20, is an exemplary mother who lives with her parents, sisters and young son in the house where she was born. When she was little she worked tirelessly looking after her father's livestock, which her mother still does to this day. Thais however now works buying and selling milk, on average 300 litres a day, which she sells for making cheese, yoghurt and butter. Business is going well for her but she would like to increase the amount of milk she sells. This is her first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for the financial support which will help her to get ahead. She promises to make her repayments in a timely manner. Thais will invest the 1,000 soles in buying wholesale milk to stock up her business.
