A loan of $200 helped to purchase sacks of natural fertilizer.

Sonia's story

Sonia is 31 years old and a very industrious woman. She lives in her own home along with her husband, Juan, 31, and their beloved 6-year-old son Carlos, for whom they want to provide a better quality of life. Sonia is passionately dedicated to her work in the fields, taking much care to cultivate coffee, since her family depends on the production. What she likes most about her work is being able to do it alongside her husband, who motivates her to keep moving forward to obtain coffee plants. At the same time, she considers the most difficult part to be dealing with the weeds that grow among her crops. She counts on the support of Kiva partner MFP, which helps her with her work in the fields. This is her fourth loan, and she is proud of knowing that once again she will have financial support. She is responsible for the meetings held at her community bank. With the loan, she plans to purchase sacks of natural fertilizers to maintain her crops.
