Fuente De Vida Santa Rita Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy compost, fertilizer, herbicide, fungicide, and to pay for labor costs and to rent the land.

Fuente De Vida Santa Rita Group's story

Elizabet is 49 years old. She is partnered and the mother of eight children. She has been a farmer and a merchant for twenty-eight years. She is asking for a loan in Fundenuse with Kiva funds to plant beans. She needs to buy supplies like compost and fertilizer so that she can obtain a better yield on her harvests. It is also to pay for labor costs and to rent the land. She also sells ice cream, sodas, and juice. Her biggest dream is to be able to buy her own land and to set up a business in her house. She is very grateful for the previous loan with Kiva funds, because things went very well with her harvests. She was able to pay it off ahead of the loan's due date, and she stored the harvest to await a better price. She belongs to the “Fuente de Vida Santa Rita” support group with Deysi and Juan, who also work in agriculture.
