A loan of $575 helped to buy manure.

Delfina's story

Delfina, who is 47 years old, is married to Andréss. They have one child who is 5 years old and lives with them in their house which is built with quality construction materials. The green fields in the basin are very productive. Most of the residents in the area work growing pineapples, all varieties of pineapple.
She only started sowing pineapple 4 years ago. She also grows citrus fruits and cacao. She gets up very early in the morning to weed the fields where her crops grow. The care that she gives to her plants results in crops that are renowned for their high quality. In fact, during the growing season sellers visit her farm to negotiate for her harvest.

In a few months’ time she will harvest several hectares of orange. She has a buyer for them already. Given the demand for her products, Delfina is thinking about buying more farmland. This would enable her to meet customer demand.

This is her third loan from Kiva. She hopes that you will be interested in collaborating with her to continue working towards her goals. Delfina will invest the S/.1500 soles in the purchase of manure, which she will spread between her pineapple and citrus fruit plots, so that she can keep them the plants in good condition.
