A loan of $2,000 helped to buy improved flower and vegetables seeds.

Delia's story

Delia is married and has two school-aged children. They live in their own 5-room home in the Palomar neighborhood of La Paz.
Delia currently works over eight hours a day in her neighborhood store. On the weekends, she and her husband work all day in agriculture. They do this to help cover the costs of food, education and basic services for their family. Her husband also works as a brick layer doing repair and new construction.
They need the loan to purchase improved flower and vegetable seed. It will be a big help to them, as this type of seed doesn't need as much watering, doesn't deplete the land as much and has a fast production. They will then be able to improve their income as well as their quality of life.
Delia's dream is to increase her agricultural production and also to make her living entirely in livestock, as the she doesn't get much profit from the other businesses.
This is Delia's third loan with IMPRO and her third time working with KIVA.
