A loan of $725 helped to purchase organic fertilizer.

Salome's story

Salome is 45 years old, married to Teodoro, and has six children who all live in their house built from wood. Salome and her husband work as farmers, planting cacao, coffee, and other local products. At the beginning, she worked on other farm plots, but with her savings, she was able to accumulate enough to purchase her first plot of farm land. Thanks to this opportunity, she was able to work as an independent producer and improve her income. Her work in the field is very hard since it is necessary to keep her crops well maintained because she depends on the quality of the products. In order to do this, she wants to hire local workers to remove the weeds from her fields and put down organic fertilizer on her plants.

This is her first loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support that she is receiving to move forward. She promises to make her repayments on time.

She is requesting 2000 nuevos soles to purchase organic fertilizer to nourish her plants.
