A loan of $675 helped to buy organic manure.


Lourdes's story

Lourdes is 46 years old and is a hard-working woman. She lives with her two daughters in their house. Lourdes works in agriculture and cattle-rearing and grows potato, corn, beans, wheat, barley, and pasture which she uses to feed her cattle. She and her family have set themselves the goal of improving every year and increasing their agricultural and cattle production so they can sell the food in other cities. This is Lourdes's fourth loan from Kiva, and she is grateful for the financial support she receives from them which allows her to get on in life. She also pledges to make timely repayments. Lourdes will invest 1800 soles to buy organic manure for her crops.
