Zonia's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to give maintenance to her cocoa plot, and serve her customers.

Zonia's story

Zonia is 44 years old and mother of 3 beautiful children. Twenty years ago she invested in the cultivation of cocoa, corn, beans and plantains.

Her biggest challenge has always been the low prices of cocoa. In this opportunity, Zonia wants to request a loan from Kiva for the maintenance of her plot, especially for her cocoa plantation.

In order to have an extra income, she also works in other plots and her husband works in construction.

Her biggest dreams are to build her own house in the same city and to have a better quality of life. Zonia considers herself a hardworking and responsible person, eager to move ahead.
