A loan helped to maintain coffee plants.


María's story

María is a single mother to three children who help her with the agricultural work. She makes a living by farming coffee, bananas and cacao.

She is requesting a loan to help maintain six manzanas [1 manzana is about 1.7 acres] of coffee. Making this investment will help her to get a good yield from her crops.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Shannon Yarosik.


This loan is special because:

It empowers farmers to diversify, and thus stabilize, their families' sources of income.
