A loan of $400 helped to purchase organic fertilizer.

Nancy's story

Nancy, 22 years old, is a woman who is single, hardworking, and young. She lives in the company of her parents, caring for them in the house they constructed. From the first rays of sun she works on caring for her crops and spreading new seed which will sprout in the land which she inherited from her parents. "I feel happy to become independent in agriculture," she affirms. Her principal plants are peas, potatoes, beans, and other agricultural products which she sells in the town of Tarma where she gains good earnings. She comments that thanks to her effort she was able to study a professional degree, and her biggest dream is to study in the university. Now she wants to continue working hard to keep helping her family and also gain her objectives. This would be her first loan with Kiva and she promises to pay her quotas in a punctual manner. Nancy will invest the 1000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to feed her plants.
