Gilma Teofila's story
Gilma is 50 and lives in the city of Pucallpa, where she has a plot of farmland that she's worked for 20 years. The farm has allowed Gilma to maintain her household and provide for her six children. Gilma is grateful to Kiva lenders, as their help will allow her to purchase fertilizers, manure, and other farming supplies. These inputs will help Gilma maintain her crops more effectively, increase the harvest, and result in higher income. This additional income will allow Gilma to keep pursuing her chief goal: "to have a better home."
