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


Juana's story

Juana is a 46-year-old single mother who lives in her own home with her three children. She has been farming for 20 years and grows potatoes, peas, and corn. Juana also raises cattle, which was difficult at first, but now she has the help of her children who are grown. She always likes seeing her land cleared so that she can work hard at her crops. Juana considers farming to be profitable and it gives her satisfaction and a sense of achievement, which is why she continues to plant crops. In addition, this is the only type of work that she knows.

This is her fourth Kiva loan and she is grateful to have the financial support that she needs to continue forward. Juana also promises to complete her loan payments in a punctual manner. She will invest 3,000 PEN in the purchase of organic fertilizer for nourishing her crops.
