A loan of $200 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 43 years old. She lives with Fernando, with whom she has 6 children. Most of them already have their own families. That is why she and her husband live with the youngest, who is 8 years old, in the house she bought 15 years ago.

Rosa works hard in the cropland she has and she is a responsible farmer. That is how, in the 5 hectares she has, she grows coffee, and orange, lemon and avocado trees. This activity has allowed her to obtain the capital necessary to acquire a pickup truck, which she drives with one of her older sons. At each harvest, she puts her products in crates and offers them to her buyers. It is going very well for her and she works in coordination with her son, whose income benefits both of them. This is her second Kiva loan and she is grateful for the financial support that she is being given to continue with her business.

Rosa will invest the S/.500 soles in buying organic fertilizer to feed her crops.
