A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer and coffee seeds.

Yolanda's story

Yolanda, age 27, is married to Juan and has two children. They live together in their own house made of wood. Yolanda is a farmer, and she grows organic cacao, which is one of the most profitable products in her area. She started this business activity ten years ago. She is lucky to have very productive land, which generates very good products.

She plans to divide her parcels of land into two sectors. One of them will be for organic cacao, and the other sector will be for organic coffee. In order to do so, she wishes to get coffee seeds and organic fertilizer. She plans to continue working with the same motivation as always. This is because her objective is to increase the size of her parcels even more by purchasing other land that her neighbors plan to sell in the future.

This is her first loan with Kiva. She is grateful for the financial support she is receiving in order to get ahead. She pledges to make her payments punctually. She will use the 1,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer and coffee seeds.
