Maria Zulema's story

Zulema is a returning client of Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner). She is the loving mother of a family and she is attentive to her 3 children and her husband. She is 43 years old and she lives in a community (a poor rural community) located in the district of Pitipo in the province of Chiclayo, Lambayeque.

Zulema has a great deal of experience in working the land. She has been dedicated to agriculture for the past 10 years. She has 2 hectares of hard yellow corn and it needs upkeep. For this reason Zulema requests a loan from Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva Field Partner) of 3000 nuevos soles. This will help her fertilize and weed her fields. Zulema will achieve a greater yield per hectare and this will help her earn a greater income for her family.

Zulema has had two past loans and they were both paid on time and responsibly. They help her capitalize the plantation by sowing on additional hectares of agricultural land.
