Frine's story

Frine is 34 years old. She is married to Marcelino and they have 2 children who live in the home they own. Frine works as a farmer on her two hectare plot of land. She started 7 years ago and since then has tried to obtain good quality harvests with the help of her husband and some workers from the area she hires to do the complicated work like weeding and harvesting the pods.

At times, she has the help of her three children for minor tasks. They are proud of their parents. To obtain a better result for her harvests, she fertilizes her cropland with organic fertilizer which is very good for the cacao. It also allows for natural growth and avoids artificial fertilizers. In addition to growing cacao, she also has a considerable area for coffee, which obtains good additional income. This is her third loan with Kiva and she is grateful for the financial support she is receiving to get head. She is also committed to making her payments on time. At this time, she wants 2,000 nuevos soles to buy organic fertilizer.
