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

A loan helped to plant beans and corn.

Jara's story

Jara is married and has one dependent daughter. With the help of her husband, she has worked growing beans and corn. Her father allows her to use his lands to grow these crops. This has permitted her to generate sufficient income to provide for the family and to pay her daughter's school expenses.

Jara requests financing with Kiva funds from Aldea Global to plant 18 "manzanas" of beans and 3 "manzanas" of corn. [1 manzana is about 1.7 acres.] She will invest the loan in payment to laborers for work such as application of mulch and fertilizers, which will yield optimal development of her crops.
