A loan of $1,400 helped buy agricultural supplies.


Maria Elena's story

Sra. Maria lives in the neighbourhood of San Caralampio in the municipality of La Concepcion with her husband. She works hard every day to improve her standard of living. Currently she has two manzanas (approximately 3.5 acres) of coffee plants and two manzanas of citrus trees (lemons, oranges, avocado), all of which require maintenance so they don’t get disease or damage from the weather.

With the loan she is seeking Maria plans to buy agricultural supplies and fertilizer necessary for the best care of her fields. She is grateful for the support from Afodinic and Kiva over the years.
