A loan of $550 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Justina's story

Justina, age 40, has three children who are independent. She lives in her own house with her husband. Justina grows yucca, cacao, coffee, and other products on her farmland. She has suffered some setbacks in her life because her husband lost his job as a workman. There was not enough money for the family’s basic needs. That is why, nine years ago, with the desire to succeed, she decided to start a new product.

She decided to start planting regional products on her land. It is very well-received by the people who go to the market daily. She likes what she does. It allows her to have time to be able to take care of her house. Also, since she started her business, her finances are going well for her.

This is her first Kiva loan. She is hoping for your collaboration in order to continue with her objectives. She pledges to make her payments punctually. She will use the requested 1,500 soles to buy organic fertilizer for her crops.
