Santa
Santa is 43 years old and she's married to Enrique who is 53 years old. Together they have 3 children who live with them in their house, which is made of noble materials. Santa owns a hectare and a half of farming land which she bought when she was very young. This is where she works to maintain her cultivated fields in good shape. This allows her to obtain a high quality product which she sells at a good price in her local markets. She started working as a farmer due to her parents initiative, they supported her since she was a child in the various agricultural tasks which are a part of this trade.

Santa uses only organic fertilizer in order to obtain an optimal growth in her fields, which are very fertile. Nonetheless, this also encourages the growth of weeds which she must remove constantly with the help of workers who she pays ahead of time. When harvesting time comes around she hires support employees in order to pick up the ripe fruits and to air dry them. She then bags her fruits in the appropriate burlap bags and takes them to the area warehouse where she is paid according to the quality of her product.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she feels thankful for the financial support she receives in order to get ahead. She also commits to pay her dues punctually. She wants to take this opportunity to apply for 1,000 nuevos soles ($375) in order to purchase organic fertilizer.

Santa tiene 43 años, está casada con Enrique de 53 años y tiene 3 hijos que viven con ella en su casa hecha de material noble. Posee un terreno de cultivo de una hectárea y media que compró desde muy joven donde actualmente se dedica a mantener sus plantaciones en buen estado porque le permite obtener una buena calidad de los frutos en la cosecha y venderlos a buen precio en los centros de venta de su localidad
Se inicio por iniciativa de sus padres a quienes apoyaba desde niña en las distintas tareas agrícolas de este oficio. Usa solo abono orgánico para tener un crecimiento óptimo de sus plantaciones porque los terrenos de sus cultivos son muy fértiles. No obstante esto también favorece al crecimiento de maleza que debe retirar constantemente con la ayuda de trabajadores a quienes paga por adelantado. Cuando llega la cosecha contrata personal de apoyo para la recolección de los frutos maduros y secarlos al aire libre para posteriormente ponerlos en sacos adecuados y llevarlos a los acopiadores del lugar en donde recibe un precio de acuerdo a la calidad.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 está oportunidad desea contar con 1,000 nuevos soles para comprar abono orgánico.
