A loan of $1,275 helped to plant yucca.


Rosa Amanda's story

Rosa, age 39, is married and lives in the Villa Alvarez region. She is a responsible, honest, and very hard-working person. She works on a farm with her small inventory of livestock. She also does agricultural work, and these are her main sources of income.

She is very grateful to Kiva for having benefitted from her previous loan. The loan was used to buy calves, which she sold for a greater price. She was able to get greater income this way, and she made progress and invested in her farm. She is trying to keep it in a good state with better pastures and water supplies for her livestock.

Rosa works with her husband and daughters. She now needs this loan to invest in establishing three “manzanas” [a manzana is approximately 1.74 square meters] of yucca crops. This way she manages to increase her production, which will facilitate financial improvement for her household. It will also provide her family with a better quality of life.

She hopes to once again benefit from a Kiva loan in order to be able to make this small project a reality. Her biggest dream is to keep her farm in excellent condition and to continue improving her quality of life.
