Neofita's story

Neófita is 41 years old, married and lives with her husband and two children in a house they own, which is made of adobe. Several years ago, Neófita was in delicate health and because of this she opened a food store. Nevertheless when she got better she decided to go back to work in the fields where she has been cultivating cacao and coffee, among other more commercial crops in the area.

In order to obtain commercial grade crops she treats her land with organic fertilizer and to facilitate her work she also contracts workers who help her with the sowing process. One of her principal objectives is to expand her food store and to increase productivity on her farmland.

This is her second loan from Kiva and she hopes to continue having its financial support so that she can continue progressing. With the sum of S/. 1,000 she will buy organic fertilizer for her crops.
