A loan of $375 helped to purchase organic manure.

Virginia's story

Virginia is 35 and lives with Felix, the father of her three children, in a home that they build using new construction materials. Virginia has been a farmer for over a decade and enjoys the work as she's used to spending long hours working in the fields. Virginia works with a crew she that she's hired to help with complicated jobs such as pulling weeds and harvesting crops.

Virginia observes that it's essential to have funds available to purchase supplies that allow her to harvest high quality commercial produce. This is why she usually purchases bags of organic manure. This is Virginia's fourth loan with Kiva and she will use the 1,000 new soles to purchase organic manure. Virginia is grateful for the financial support she's received to sustain her farm and is committed to making timely payments.
