She needs the loan to buy improved seeds in order to improve production and also help to protect the environment since the use of these seeds means a shorter growing time and so irrigation is minimal. Thus she will improve production while preserving the environment.
Lidia’s dream is to increase production without damaging the environment and to have production that will improve her income to have a better future for her children.
This is the sixth time she’s requested a loan from IMPRO and first time from KIVA.
El crédito lo requiere para compra de semilla mejorada: de esta manera mejorara su producción y ayudara a la preservación del medio ambiente ya que al utilizar estas semillas el terreno será menos utilizado, además el riego de agua será mínimo así tendrá una mejor producción y preservara el medio ambiente.
El sueño de Lidia, es incrementar su producción agrícola sin dañar el medio ambiente, y tener una producción que mejore sus ingresos para mejorar su calidad de vida.
Es la sexta vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y la primera vez con KIVA.
