A loan of $600 helped to purchase corn seed.


Vilma Sobeida's story

Vilma Sobeida is 56 years old. She is married and she lives with her husband and their son named Danilo.

Vilma is a member of the rural village of San Jose de los Amarillos. There are 23 members in her group and the majority of them are agriculturists. This is the second loan they request through the San Jose Cooperative (Kiva Field Partner).

Vilma is an agriculturist, having corn plantations. She carries out her purchases and sales in the city of Ventanas.

She requests a loan to invest in the purchase of corn seeds. She sees this loan as an opportunity to get ahead. Her dreams are to have a plot of land where to build her own home. The challenges she faces are langosta infestations and blights in her fields.

She enjoys dedicating her time to God.
