A loan of $400 helped to purchase fertilizer.


Dionela's story

Dionela is 22 years old and married to Nilton, with whom she has a 3 year old son. They live in the house that Nilton inherited from his parents. Dionela is a young mother and all of her efforts are in order to develop her family. She has three fields that she received from her in-laws where she plants spinach, alfalfa, peas, oregano, chamomile, and other crops. Thanks to her skills at business, she travels to the city of Lima where she sells her harvest for a better price.

Dionela, at her young age, has experienced failures and losses, which were mostly due to her lack of financial resources. With effort and sacrifice she has succeeded in aquiring land where she can begin to plant corn.

This is her second loan with Kiva, and she promises to be punctual with her repayments. She is requesting 1000 soles to purchase fertilizer that will be scattered on her pea and spinach crops.
