A loan of $375 helped buy organic fertilizer.

Felicita's story

Felicita is 46 years old. She is married, and she has three children who live at home. Felicita works in agriculture, and thanks to the time she spends on her crops, she can have a good harvest in each growing season. Her main crops consist of coffee and plantains, which she sells in her city to wholesalers who come on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Felicita feels very satisfied because of the results she's getting. Her main goal is to cultivate more agricultural products from the area, and she's already taken the first step with the avocado and citrus plantings, which are growing without much difficulty and will very soon produce their first fruits.

This is her fourth loan with Kiva, and she feels grateful to receive financial help that allows her to keep getting ahead. Felicita will invest 1,000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to nourish her crops.
