Maria Erlinda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase farming supplies to care for her coffee crops.
Maria Erlinda's story
Maria Erlinda is grateful for the financial support that the cooperative has provided together with the different lenders on Kiva. Thanks to her first loan, she covered various commitments, including: purchasing manure, fertilizer, and urea, and purchasing a backpack for fumigation since she only had one and they needed another. She also paid for laborers to clean her crops and repair fences that were damaged. Now she is requesting a second loan to purchase farming supplies for the new season since once the coffee grains are collected, the plants and land are at risk and deteriorated and that is an important factor in safely planting and allowing the plants can grow favorably. She hopes to be supported by a variety of Kiva lenders again so that she can purchase the supplies that she needs to care for her crops.
