A loan of $600 helped to buy organic manure.

Eva's story

Eva, 35, is married and has two small children she cares for in the wood house she built a few years ago. Her parents worked in agriculture and that had been their only source of income. Years passed and Eva fell in love with a very hardworking and, above all, responsible farmer.

Eva works growing and selling citrus fruit although she also sometimes buys them from neighbors because that’s more convenient and the investment is smaller. She also buys green plantains that are very inexpensive and in time they ripen and she resells them at a higher price.

This is her third loan with Kiva and she’s grateful for the financial support she gets because it makes it possible for her to advance in her economic activity which is why she’s sure to make her payments punctually. Eva will use the 1,500 soles to buy organic manure to nourish her crops.
