Amazonas Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to maintain her cocoa plot, clean it to prevent pests and thus have a better harvest and provide her customers with quality products.


Amazonas Group's story

The Amazonas communal bank is in its third cycle. It is made up of 7 members and is led by Herly who is the president and is also a member of the board of directors along with the treasurer and secretary who appear in the photo. Due to the pandemic, only the three members were photographed to represent their team.

Herly is 25 years old and she is a young mother of 2 children of 9 and 4 years old. Some time ago she started activities in the cocoa, coffee and banana harvest. With this, she has been able to raise her children.

This time she requests a loan through Kiva to invest in the maintenance of her cocoa plot. She wants to clean to avoid pests and thus have a better harvest and provide her customers with quality products.

Herly considers herself an enterprising, hardworking woman with a willingness to pay her loan. She is separated from her partner and decided to get by alone with her children. Currently, she continues to save to invest in the purchase of fertilisers for her crops, that is why she works in other agricultural plots as a day labourer.
