Yuli's story

Yuli is 20 years old and lives with her husband Cristian and her little daughter Ariana in their wooden house. Yuli works in agriculture. She grows products that are profitable in the area. such as organic cacao and barbasco. Since she was a child she grew up with her parents who did the same activity, motivating her to continue in the family business on her own. When she got engaged to Cristian, she found in him a great work companion who goes out to the fields every morning to do the different tasks, hoping to obtain quality products at the end of the productive season so that they can sell their dry grains at a good price to the wholesalers in the city. Organic cacao is a very profitable product in her community but it also requires constant labor for care and maintenance. That is why sometimes she hires workers from the are to take out the weeds among the plants and thus keep these from consuming the nutrients from her cropland. Her main objective id to build a brick house. This is her second Kiva loan and she is grateful for the financial support that she is getting to continue ahead. She is also committed to making her payments on time. At this time, she wants to ask for 3,000 nuevos soles to buy organic fertilizer and new cacao plants.
