A loan of $1,100 helped to buy organic fertilizer.


Julia's story

Julia, 51, is married to Máximo, 55, and they have four children who are able to go to school. They live in a wood house built several years ago on their own property. For nearly 16 years Julia has been growing cocoa which she thought would be the best way to generate an income and provide for her family. She has always been able to count on her husband for his unconditional support, although sometimes she must hire workers to do the heavy work. With the crop maintenance season approaching, it is necessary to have organic fertilizer for the crops. This is Julia's second loan through Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support to help her get ahead. She is committed to paying back the loan on time. On this occasion she is requesting 3,000 PEN to buy organic fertilizer and continue growing her crops without problems.
