A loan helped to maintain her plantain plot so that she can continue offering a high-quality product at a fair price.


Fanny Elizabeth's story

Fanny is 37 years old. She has a 16 year old daughter and an 8 year old little boy who are her driving force and motivation to keep forging ahead. She is a single mother and a persevering and hardworking person who has a strong desire to better herself.

Fanny has been growing and selling plantains for eight years. She wants to continue improving her business by increasing her acreage.

At this time, Fanny is applying for a Kiva loan to maintain her plantain plot so that she can continue offering a high-quality product at a fair price.

Fanny wants to use her extra earnings to continue investing in her crops and to raise small animals to boost her income and provide a better quality of life for her children.

This loan is special because:

It schedules repayment rates based on the harvest season to put less pressure on farmers' families.
