Santa Sarita Group's story

Grecia, 21, has a four year old son for whom she strives in order to provide him with a better future. Four years ago, she started working in agriculture, growing coffee and cacao.

In her free time, Grecia works as a day laborer on other farms, helping with the harvest and fertilizing. She is seeking a loan through Kiva to maintain her coffee crops. She is hoping to grow high quality products and sell them at fair price.

She sees herself as an enterprising, punctual, very responsible, early-riser. She is a member of the Santa Sarita lending group, which is made up of 10 partners. Her greatest challenge is improving her agricultural productivity and getting ahead with her son and husband.
