A loan of $1,075 helped to buy organic fertilizer..


Delfina's story

Delfina, age 31, lives in her own home with her husband Emilio and their young son. She has worked in agriculture from a very young age and is currently growing peas with her husband. Delfina says that the work requires some sacrifices. She must get up at dawn every day so that she can look after her crops with dedication. However, she is encouraged when she is rewarded for all of her efforts with a bountiful harvest as soon as the peas are ready to be picked. During that time, she hires workers to carry the heavy sacks that will be sold to the wholesale vendors in the city. The profits she earns from the sale of her natural products are average, which explains why she is able to provide her family with a good quality of life. Since farming can be a profitable business, she plans to plant more crops so that she can improve her earnings. In addition, she wants to buy pigs so that she can begin selling these animals.

This is Delfina’s fourth Kiva loan and she is grateful to know that she has the financial support that will allow her to continue her business. In addition, she promises to submit her loan payments in a punctual manner. She will invest 3,000 PEN in the purchase of organic fertilizer so that she can nourish her crops.
