Gladys Esmeralda's story

Esmeralda is a hardworking young woman and mother of three children, ages eight, five and one. She lives in the parish of Imantag, canton of Cotacachi, province of Imbabura.

Esmeralda, 27, despite her young age, is very dedicated to her housework because she has small children who she must care for. She is a single mother and must work to support and educate them since she wants them to become professionals in the future.

She works in agriculture like most people in the community. She has received help from a relative who lends her land to grow beans and improve her income.

Esmeralda is in need of a loan to buy seeds and fungicides and hire workers to plant a hectare of beans.

She is very grateful for Kiva’s help.
