default Kiva Update and new loan 25th June 2011

Post by Adrian on 25th June 2011, 3:41 pm

Thank you newest donor, your donation is very much appreciated and has been added to our Kiva fund and loaned out today.

I chose this lady - it was hard not to be charmed by her beautiful smile.



Olga Basilia Ticona Butron

Puno, Puno, Peru
Agriculture | Animal Sales

Olga is a member of the "San Miguel Arcángel II" community bank, which is located in the Llave district in El Collao province in the department of Puno in Peru. She is 33 years old, married and has two children. She has a high school education.

Together with her husband she sells pork at Llave market. They have worked with Kiva Field Partner, Movimiento Manuela Ramos, for one year. Olga's first loan was for 500 PEN, money which she invested in her business selling pork.

With this new loan of 1500 PEN, she will buy three or four pigs for their meat, which she will then sell.
Her dream is to own a house, and a cart in which she can transport her animals.

What she likes about the Community Bank is the training provided in money management - how to save and how to make your money grow.

There's a definite pig theme going on here....!!

Why not, Aj?

And doesn't she look pleased! Very Happy I love my kiva loans and I love that we do it on here ...I don't know of another forum that does, though I guess there probably are many...
