A loan of $575 helped to buy a cooler.

Eudosia's story

Eudosia is 33 years old, married to Abraham, and has two children. They all live together in a rented house. Eudosia raises organic cacao with her husband, on 4 hectares of farmland that she acquired 10 years ago. The main problem she faces is that she doesn't have enough capital to renew her crops with new plants, for which she needs to hire people from a local co-op and evaluate the quality of her farmland.

She constantly hires local workers to help with the weeding and harvest. Her goal is to acquire land on which to build a home and leave the rented house. This will be her second loan through Kiva and she is grateful for this opportunity. She is also committed to being on time with her payments. She will use the 1,500 PEN from this loan to buy a cooler to store her crops and also make some home improvements.
