A loan helped to buy supplies for her chayote crop, and also to buy pigs and feed.


Edilma's story

Edilma is involved in two projects. The first is growing chayote, and the second is raising pigs. She has been working in these two jobs for five years.

Edilma was motivated to start these projects because of the wish to complete her goals and to start working. For this reason she is seeking a loan to buy supplies for her chayote crop, and also to buy pigs and feed. The loan will help her improve the products and harvest so she can sell them in local auctions. As a result she will improve her financial situation and improve her family's standard of living.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Jane A.

It enables a low-income person in Panama to build a better future for themselves.
