María's story

María is a single mother and is only supported by her father. She has three children, one of whom goes to school while the oldest helps her with the farm work and the other child is under school age.

She is requesting a Kiva loan through Aldea Global to maintain a 0.62 manzana [approx. 1 acre] of carrots currently under cultivation. She will invest in compost and fertilizers to obtain a better yield and be able to sell at a good price.

She hopes to get her children ahead and improve her quality of life through vegetable and coffee farming so that she can grow her assets.
