Saturnina's story

This is Saturnina, a modest and an enterprising 36-year-old who is married. She has a good understanding and experience with the farming business which she has been doing for a few years now. On her farm she grows many kinds of plants, vegetables and kitchen herbs. When her vegetables are old enough she always sells them at a local market to generate income for her family. The business has been helpful for her family since she first started because it helps provide every day needs for her family.

She has been a good client of KAEBAUK with a good record of payment and this is her fourth loan (it is the first time she is posted on Kiva's website) and now she would like a loan of $1,200 through KIF to help grow her farming business. She plans to use this loan to buy fertilizer, vegetable seeds and farming equipment for the following harvest.

Martinha hopes to increase her farming productivity in this following harvest and would like to thank to all the lenders for the opportunity.
