A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Jessica's story

Jessica, age 26, is married and has two children with whom she lives in her parents’ house. Jessica is a farmer. She has two hectares of farmland where she started to grow regional products.

What Jessica likes the most is devoting the greatest part of the day to her coffee and banana crops. She has been doing this for two years. She is happy and fulfilled because it is her own business. Therefore, she wishes to plant in greater quantities. What bothers her is how far away her farmland is. She has to walk a lot of hours in order to be able to get there. However, she is aware of the good income. That is why she is saving to buy her own house.

This is her fourth loan with Kiva. She is grateful for the financial support that has been given to her. She pledges to make her payments punctually.

Jessica will use the requested 2,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer to nourish her coffee plants.
