Susana's story

Susana is a hard-working and responsible 60-year-old woman who has four older children. She currently lives with her eldest son. She is divorced. She prefers to be single and continues to improve her production of cacao, bananas, and coffee.

She's always enjoyed being an independent woman. For this reason she's always been involved in agriculture. She has been able to combat infestations and diseases that have appeared in her crops.

Susana is currently seeking a loan through Kiva to perform maintenance on her plot of land. She wants to do weeding, pruning, and all the clearing of her agricultural land, with the sole objective of preventing pests from infesting her crops.

With the extra earnings, she wants to invest in the purchase of island fertilizer (bird guano) in order to improve production and acquire new agricultural land. This way she'll be able to increase her income.
