Wendy Carolina's story
Wendy, 33, completed primary education successfully thanks to the support of her parents. She is married to Denis, a hard-working man who just like her, works sowing guava and papaya. They have four children who are at school and who also help with the daily chores, supporting one another whenever necessary. She has been in this line of work for three years after learning about it from her husband. Part of their land was bought, and the other was inherited from her husband's parents. They have a steady amount of reliable customers for their produce as it is a very popular product. They have to overcome the threat of plagues such as worms, which can seriously affect the plantations and therefore, production. The land is located two kilometers from their home and they travel their on a motorbike. Together, they plan to expand their business by buying more land so they can generate more income and grow different types of fruit according to market demand. They would also like to buy a car and be able to continue supporting their children with their education so they have better prospects in the future. On this occasion, she is asking for a loan to invest in fertilizer for the manure of her guava plantation, to pay for labor costs and to be able to clean up the land. This help from the Kiva organisation and lenders will allow them to have a better harvest.
