A loan of $725 helped to buy tools and organic manure.


Leonora's story

Leonora, 50, is married to Constantino and she had several children with him all of which are independent adults now. She lives with her husband in an adobe house. Leonora works in agriculture which is her main source of income. She considers it to be very demanding work even though it’s routine to provide a series of care measures to her crops aimed at obtaining quality fruit.

What she grows the most is organic cocoa beans because it’s one of the most profitable crops. However, she still must have money available each growing cycle to buy organic manure and to hire local workers.

This is her first Kiva loan and she feels grateful for the financial support she gets to continue forward. She also commits to make her payments punctually.

She needs 2,000 new soles on this occasion to buy tools like picks, pruning shears and organic manure for her crops.
