Zulema
Zulema is 28 years old and is married to Hector. They have a daughter who they are raising in the house she inherited several years ago. She works as a farmer in her own plots of land located on the outskirts of her community. Her main crops include potatoes, beans, peas and corn. She has three years of experience. What she likes most about her job is that she can pass on the knowledge that she inherited from her parents. In addition, she says that she works the fields in partnership with another lady, with whom she shares the costs of the seeds, manure and fertilizers that her farm requires. However, what she enjoys most is taking care of small animals such as guinea pigs. She sells these animals for a good price at the Modelo market in Tarma, where she sells upon request. This is her fifth Kiva loan and she is committed to paying her installments on time.
Zulema will use her loan to buy organic fertilizer to nourish her fields.
