A loan of $925 helped to buy organic compost.

Yrene's story

33-year-old Yrene is married to Félix and lives in her own home with her two children of 16and 4 years of age. Yrene works in agriculture, growing cocoa, bananas and other local products, as she recognised this as a highly profitable business. She has a 15-hectare plot, 3 hectares of which are in production, and has been farming it for 6 years, helped by a regional government incentive which enabled her to obtain seeds and the support of her husband and son who do the maintenance work. She likes her work; it generates a very good income, as her produce currently has a good market price. This will be her first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for the financial help which will enable her to make progress. She is committed, therefore, to make her repayments punctually. She will use the 2500 nuevos soles requested to buy organic compost for her cocoa, bananas and other produce.
