A loan of $550 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Isabe's story

Isabe is 26 years old and she is a responsible mother. She lives with Juan, her husband of 7 years. Together they have two children who they have cared for in the home of her in-laws for the past 5 years. Isabe works in agriculture - in growing corn, alfalfa and lima beans. She started working in agriculture because she inherited land from her parents. She says, "This has enabled me to save a lot. The alfalfa has especially helped because I feed it to the animals."

She now plans to buy her own home, and with her work and her savings, she knows she can do it. This is her third Kiva loan and she feels happy to receive the financial support she needs to get ahead in her agricultural work. Isabe will invest 1500 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer for her next alfalfa planting cycle.
