Mayra's story

Mayra is 31 years old and married. She has two children for whom she wants a better future.

Mayra and her husband have grown up in the country, where they learned to earn a living through agricultural work. Now Mayra has decided to ask for a Kiva loan because she wants to grow barley and rotate her crops in order to let the land rest. The harvest from this product will give her the chance to earn additional income for supporting her family. It will also be a source of food for her family.

In order to be able to grow this grain, Mayra needs to pay for a tractor to plow, a reaper, agricultural supplies, and labor. Trusting in the helpful support of Kiva lenders, Mayra is grateful for their trust in her agricultural work, which she depends on to get her humble family ahead.
