Yolinda
Yolinda is 34 years old. She is divorced and has 4 children who live with her in a home made of wood. Yolinda works in agriculture on her 2 hectare plot that she purchased with her partner over 15 years ago. It has become her main source of income and her primary job. She works for herself and every day can be found caring for her cacao and coffee plants so that at the end of the season she will have a quality crop that she can sell to the local wholesalers and recoup he money that she has invested during the growing season. She is fortunate to have very fertile land that allows her to obtain good results, however she still needs to fertilize her land with organic fertilizer.

She generally hires local workers to help her with harvesting and weeding the crops. What she likes most about her work is picking the cocoa pods, after which she just has to extract the beans and dry them for final sale. This is her first loan with Kiva. She is thankful for the financial support she will receive in order to keep going. She promises to make her payments on time. She is requesting 3,0000 new soles for the purchase of organic fertilizer and seedling plants.

Yolinda tiene 34 años, es divorciada y tiene 4 hijos que viven con ella en su casa hecha de madera. Yolinda se dedica a la agricultura en su terreno de 2 hectáreas que compro junto a su pareja hace más de 15 años y se convirtió desde entonces en su principal sustento económico y también principal oficio. Trabaja todos los días de manera independiente realizando actividades de mantenimiento a sus plantaciones de cacao y café para obtener a fin de campaña una producción de calidad que vende a los acopiadores del lugar logrando recuperar el dinero que suele invertir durante la campaña productiva. Tiene la suerte de tener terrenos muy fértiles que le permiten obtener buenos resultados, no obstante suele fertilizar sus terrenos de cultivo con abono orgánico.
Tiene la costumbre de contratar a trabajadores del lugar para que le apoyen en la cosecha y el deshierbo de sus plantaciones. Lo que más le agrada de su trabajo según comenta es recolectar las mazorcas de cacao ya que posteriormente solo queda extraer las almendras y secarlos para su venta final. Este es su primer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecida por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual. En esta oportunidad desea contar con 3,000 nuevos soles para la compra de abono orgánico y plantas de almácigo.
