A loan of $1,925 helped to add more goats.


Kristina's story

This is 46-year-old Kristina, with her three goats and a baby one, in their little stable. Kristina wants to add some more goats with this loan, and to accomplish this, she needs your financial help. She was widowed long ago and has five school-aged children to raise, all on her own. They live in the northeastern part of the country. She and her children have been living very poorly. She was never given the opportunity to apply for a loan, since she fell below the national poverty line. Kristina is very appreciative to Kiva, and VFA also, for this great opportunity. The startup loan through VFA is 4.5% lower interest compared to other credit products, so she considers this as a “Godsend."
