Elsa
Elsa is 31 years old. She is the single mother of 2 children with whom she lives in a house built from wood. She works in agriculture on some land she acquired when she was young with the help of the man who was the father of her children. At first she had the help of her then spouse and after her separation she had to support her children alone. She has a considerable amount of trees that produce cacao pods, since her land is very fertile. She also has the help of some area workers.

She says that she needs to have the money to pay for normal expenses such as buying fertilizer and paying for the personnel. She can recover the costs when she finishes the growing season, selling to area warehouses. This is her fourth loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support that she is receiving to get ahead. At this time, she wants to have 2,000 to buy organic fertilizer and to pay for area workers she hires to harvest her crops.

Elsa de 31 años de edad, es madre soltera de 2 hijos con quienes vive en su casa construida a base de madera. Elsa se dedica a la agricultura en unos terrenos que logró adquirir con ayuda de quien fuera el padre de sus hijos cuando fue joven. Inicialmente contaba con la ayuda de su entonces pareja y tras su separación se vio en la obligación de mantener sola a sus hijas. Posee una cantidad considerable de árboles que producen mazorcas de cacao ya que sus parcelas son muy fértiles contando también con el apoyo de trabajadores del lugar.
Comenta que siempre es necesario contar con dinero para solventar los gastos típicos de su labor como es la compra de abonos y el pago a su personal de apoyo, logrando recuperarlo cuando finaliza la campaña productiva vendiendo sus productos a los acopiadores del lugar. Este es su cuarto préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante. En esta oportunidad desea contar con 2,000 para comprar abono orgánico y pagar a los trabajadores del lugar que contrata para la cosecha de sus sembríos.
