A loan of $1,075 helped to rent farmland.

Sarita's story

Sarita, age 29, is married to Julián, and they have two children, ages 12 and 8. They live together in their own house. Julián farms the land that his parents gave him when they got married. His main product is organic cacao because it is a very profitable product in their area. This way they get better income.

It is encouraging that in spite of starting with a little capital, he has managed to cover all of the family’s basic expenses as they are now responsible for their two little children. Nevertheless, working together has been a great tool for their union. Understanding and familial harmony rule in their household.

This is her second loan with Kiva. She is grateful to receive a financial support that allows her to get ahead with their education. She now wishes to request 3,000 soles to pay in advance to rent agricultural land to start increasing their production.
