A loan of $750 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Clarisa's story

Clarisa is a young woman, 21 years old. She is married and she has a 2-year-old daughter with whom she lives in a house built out of adobe. Clarisa works in agriculture together with her partner. They began at first as workers since they didn’t have enough money to buy some farm land but two years ago they used the savings that they had up until that time and they managed to buy half a hectare for cultivating. Fortunately the land that they bought had plantings of cacao and that allowed them to obtain their first earnings easily. When harvest season comes she hires local workers to assist them in gathering the fruits to offer later in their local market.

This is the second loan with Kiva and she feels grateful for the financial support she has received in order to continue to get ahead. On this occasion she wants to have 2,000 nuevos soles (PEN) to buy organic fertilizer and nourish all of her plants.
