Teofila's story

Teofila, 41, is married to Teodoro and has five children who live with them in their well-built house. Teofila produces organic cacao, which is the way her family has supported itself since she was a girl. After learning the skills of this business and reaching adulthood, she inherited land, which she works with her husband to earn a steady income for their family's future. She likes her work, though it is very difficult. She requires capital to perform the various maintenance tasks of producing cacao.

Teofila has had a problem transporting her crops from her land to the markets because the trip is quite long. She needs a vehicle to deliver her merchandise. This is her first loan cycle with Kiva. She is grateful for the opportunity and promises to make her payments on time. She needs S/.2,000 soles to buy a vehicle to take her cacao seeds to market.
