A loan helped tend to her crops of peppers and other items.

Maria's story

María is 29 years old, lives with her partner and has four children, who are her biggest priority. She wants to purchase fertilizers and pesticides to tend to her crops and to plant peppers to improve her upcoming harvests and earn more profits. She has planted peppers on her farm and is going to plant coffee in another portion. She has dedicated herself to her farm for a number of years and wants to grow as a producer in her area. This is the first loan she has received from Kiva partner FUDECOSUR. She has not had any problems with her property, but she desires to have productive lands and earn profits. She also has not taken out any loans from other banks, but FUDECOSUR provides the loan with more simplicity and much lower interest rates. She also wants to provide a better quality of life for her children in the future and keep generating profits to make headway with her farm and become a good producer of peppers and other products.
