A loan of $775 helped to buy agricultural land.

Wilma's story

Wilma is 43 and lives with her husband and two children in her own home. She works in agriculture; very early in the morning, she and her husband go to their lands in the high zone of their neighbourhood. There, every day, they care for their crops of corn, banana, yucca, and cocoa. She has worked in agriculture all her life and has used her savings to buy more land.
In the beginning she had many difficulties because she had the land but not the crops; but thanks to her experience she has been able to get ahead and obtain good yields.
With her income from her harvests and the extra income that she gets in the parish, Wilma hopes to buy a plot of land where she will sow only cocoa.
This is her first loan on Kiva. She says thank you in advance for this support and promises to be punctual with her payments. She will invest the requested 2000 soles in the purchase of land to increase her crops.
