María's story

María is requesting a loan with Kiva with Aldea Global to provide assistance to her broccoli and carrot crops that are currently in the development stage. She is already making great progress with her own funds; since she obtained good income in her past harvest and is re-investing the money.

She is the mother of three children who are 1, 5, and 10 years of age, for whom she struggles day by day to improve their standard of living. She is trying to help them study so that they can become professionals in the future. In addition to agriculture, she earns a living from selling flowers. It is not a lot, but she covers certain household expenses. Her husband works as a security guard on a farm and they both hope to build decent housing for their children and grow their business.
