A loan of $375 helped to buy organic manure.

Eva's story

Eva is 34 years old, married and has one daughter, with whom she lives in her own house. Eva mainly makes a living in farming as she sows, grows and sells cacao and bananas. She has been doing this work for around 15 years. The main problem with this work is the great fluctuations in the prices of the crops. However, thanks to her experience and knowledge, Eva has been able to move forward with her products and she now hopes to buy more land and start to produce certified, organic cacao. She will then be able to offer a better product. This is Eva's first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for this financial support. She promises to make her repayments punctually. Eva will use the 1000 Nuevo Soles to buy organic manure in order to improve production.
