A loan of $550 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Yanet's story

Yanet, age 34, lives in a home which she inherited from her parents. She has lived there from birth. She is from the countryside, and works in agriculture. Her main crops are coffee and banana, and she plants them on her own land. What she most likes about her work is being able to sell her harvest to the suppliers that visit the area; "I don't have to transport my merchandise", she says.
She also receives support from her husband, who works on different farms and makes extra money for the home. This is her fourth loan on Kiva and she is grateful for this financial support. Yanet will invest the 1500 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to nourish her crops.
