Victoria
Victoria is 49 years old, is divorced and has 5 children who live with her in her house which is constructed of quality material. Victoria makes her living in agriculture on 2 acres of farm land she inherited from her father where she has grows cocoa and other products that go in to making bread. To earn good profits from her work she needs to grow a good quality of her produce by the end of the season, which is why she frequently purchases organic fertilizer.

She likes her work very much because she considers it very calm and she can recover the money invested by selling her products to the wholesalers in the area. When it rains it complicates her work because she cannot move around her land as easily because of the mud which prevents her from getting work done like normal. For a long time she has wished to start growing organic coffee which has a good price in her region. This is why she plans to acquire more land in the future to be devoted to growing coffee.

This is her third loan with Kiva and she appreciates the financial support she receives to keep moving forward with her business. This time she is requesting 1,000 Peruvian Nuevos Soles to buy organic fertilizer to fertilize her farmland.

Victoria Tiene 49 años, es divorciada y tiene 5 hijos con quienes vive en su casa construida a base de material noble. Victoria se dedica a la agricultura en un terreno agrícola de 2 hectáreas que le heredó su padre y en donde tiene plantaciones de cacao y otros productos de pan llevar. Para obtener buenas ganancias a través de su trabajo debe obtener al termino de la campaña una buena calidad de sus frutos, es por ello que compra abono orgánico con frecuencia. Le gusta mucho su trabajo porque lo considera muy tranquilo y puede recuperar el dinero que invirtió vendiendo sus productos a los acopiadores del lugar. Cuando llueve se complica su labor porque no puede desplazarse con normalidad entre sus parcelas por el lodo evitando que realice su trabajo con normalidad. Desde hace mucho tiempo desea dedicarse a la producción de café orgánico por poseer un buen precio en su localidad, es por ello que más adelante planea adquirir un parcela para dedicarse a la producción del mismo. Es su tercer préstamo con Kiva y agradece el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante con su negocio. En esta ocasión desea contar con 1,000 nuevos soles para comprar abono orgánico y fertilizar sus terrenos de cultivo.
