Margot's story

Margot, 28, is married to Yulber. Together they have two children whom they're raising with a lot of love. They live in a rustic home they bought 14 years ago.

Margot makes a living in agriculture. With her profits from selling her crops wholesale she's able to feed and educate her children. This also gives her stable finances.

She works taking care of her crop lands, where she has grown potatoes and peas for six years. After each harvest she sells them in the main market of her city. With her profits she can give her children a better life. Margot's certain that with her experience she'll be able to achieve all her objectives.

This is her second Kiva loan. She's grateful for the opportunity to progress that she was granted because she improved her standard of living, which is why she promises to make her payments punctually.

Margot will invest the 2000 soles [PEN] in buying organic soil amendments to nourish her fields.
