Primitiva's story

Primitiva is 60 years old, but has the joy and zest for life of a young girl of 15. Primitiva lives with her husband and her three children, whom she loves very much: despite the fact that they are adults, for her they will always be her little ones.

Primitiva is a very hard-working woman, and above all, she really likes farming. This is why she works on her parcel of land. Currently she has planted the very delicious butter beans, which is a characteristic crop of her city. She believes that her work is going well because she likes what she does, and especially because she is very thorough.

Primitiva is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help they have offered her, she will be able to buy manure, fertilizers, plow the soil, and pay for irrigation expenses. In this way she will be able to have a good harvest and improve her income, and she will continue striving to make her greatest dream come true: "To have more farmland".
