A loan helped to sow beans, corn, and to buy a backpack sprayer.


María's story

María is married and has one son. She has experience cultivating basic grains. She aims to improve her production capabilities to improve her income and to cover the household expenses.

María is requesting a loan from Kiva and Aldea Global to cultivate around 3 acres of beans and almost 2 acres of corn. She will use the funds to pay the labor force to apply plant fertilizers like manure and others, which will help develop the crops. María will also buy a 21 L backpack sprayer to help her with spraying tasks.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Disa Lewis.

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