Maria Ysabel
María’s a very enthusiastic, hardworking woman. Her house is located in the city of Camaná, a city noted for its hot climate, its tourist attractions and its agriculture, especially of rice and broad beans, among others. When María has any free time she likes to watch movies with her family and also likes to prepare her favorite dish: “Seco de Pollo.” She only completed secondary education but would have liked to study Agronomy.

María is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support they’ve provided her she will be able to provide crop maintenance with manure, fertilizer and others to get a good crop yield which will make it possible for her to continue growing and be able to strive daily to make her greatest dream reality: to own a house.
