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

A loan helped to plant two "manzanas" of taro. [1 mz = 1.7 acres].

Blanca's story

Blanca is married and has three dependent children. She has experience growing taro and coffee.

With the previous loan from Kiva and Aldea Global, she successfully harvested 2.25 "manzanas" of taro. With this harvest, she obtained large profits that permitted her to improve her living conditions as well as to meet her financial obligations.

Blanca again is requesting a loan with Kiva funds to plant two "manzanas" of taro. With this financing, she will buy supplies such as mulch and fertilizer, and will cover the labor costs for preparing the land, weeding, and establishing the crop.
