A loan of $2,375 helped a member to buy pig feed and cosmetics.


Las Ranitas (Flat) Group's story

Angelica is an enterprising woman that has worked for over 8 years breeding pigs and selling cosmetics. She says she decided to start working in her own business because she wanted to help her husband with the household expenditures, so she started earning some money by acquiring and breeding pigs. Since then she has been dedicated to this activity.

Angelica says she has to spend her time feeding the pigs and keeping the pens clean, but all of this is completely worth it when she gets to obtain a good amount of money for her sales. In her free time she also sales cosmetics from a catalog line to have an extra income. A loan from Kiva and VisionFund will help her to buy pig feed and cosmetics. She hopes that with this investment her business will be prosper and she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
