A loan of $200 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Roxana's story

Roxana is 20 years old and lives with her husband and their small son in an adobe house.

Roxana has been working in agriculture for 5 years with her husband on a hectare plot where she has cocoa and organic coffee. Roxana thinks this work is a good source of income for her family as she can cover the household expenses that come up. When the harvest season comes she hires workers to help harvest the cocoa pods and later they are dried and sold in the city.

Roxana has plans to replace some cocoa trees that no longer can bear fruit so she needs to buy nursery plants and hire workers to replace them in a standardized manner.

This is her first Kiva loan and she is grateful for the financial support in order to move forward with her work. At this time she is requesting 500 soles in order to buy organic fertilizer to nourish her crops.
