A loan of $750 helped buy organic manure.


Nelly's story

32-year old Nelly is a simple woman who lives with her husband Walter and their four children whom she looks after with much love. They live in house built of traditional material which they bought twelve years ago. Nelly is a farmer and grows peas, corn, potatoes etc. Her crops do well because she has a permanent watering system allowing her to produce quality produce throughout the year. It is now pea-planting season; the harvest will be in four months' time.

This is Nelly's first loan with Kiva, and she is grateful for the financial assistance which will help her get ahead. She promises to make the repayments punctually. Her plan is to use the S/.2000 soles to buy organic manure as food for the seeds.
