Paola's story

Paola is 27 years old and married to Juan Manuel. They have two children who live with them in their home. Paola has been a farmer since she was 20 years old, raising coffee, plantains, and mangos. She has five hectares of land in production and two others that she will farm this year. Paola is happy about the coffee production this year, now that she has had a good harvest this season. She farms in various places around her area and the quality of the coffee is high. One of the difficulties she faces is the distance between her crops, but she says that she obtains more fruit by planting at the higher elevations, but it requires more care and investment. This will be her third cycle with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support that will allow her to move ahead. She promises to pay on time and will use the S/3,000 to buy compost to feed her crops.
