Rubi's story

Rubí is twenty-five years old, is married, and lives in her own home together with her husband and their only daughter. Rubí makes a living in agriculture, and her main products are corn, bananas, and cocoa. She sells these products at the market in the city and, thanks to this activity, has been able to improve her quality of life and that of her family. At first, this was difficult, but thanks to the efforts of both her and her husband, she was able to get ahead and begin her new project. She hopes that everything goes well and that her income begins to increase. She wants to improve her lands' crops.

This is her first loan with Kiva. She is thankful for the economic support she has received. She will receive capital in order to improve her business and crop production. She promises to be punctual with her payments so that she can continue working with the communal bank. She will invest the S/.1300.00 in the purchase of organic fertilizer to increase cocoa production.
