Sonia
Sonia is 36 years of age. She is married and has a son. They live together in a house that she owns.

Sonia has worked in agriculture for 10 years, cultivating different crops such as cacao and organic coffee in a plot of agricultural land that covers 2 hectares. She bought the land with the help of her husband who works as a mason.

As a young girl she lived with her parents who also worked in agriculture. This gave her the chance to learn how to produce and maintain different plantations in good condition as a way to earn an income to benefit her family. She usually works with the help of day labourers, whom she contracts for group tasks such as weeding and harvesting. Her husband also helps her when he is not working on a construction job. To improve the quality of her harvests she uses organic fertilizer. One of her dreams is to buy a vehicle to easily transport her harvests from the fields to the place where she sells them.

This it is her first loan with Kiva. She is very thankful for the financial support that she is receiving. It will allow her to move forward. On this occasion she is requesting 3000 Peruvian Soles to acquire a new plot of land to cultivate organic cacao in order to increase her income.
