A loan of $375 helped to buy organic manure for her crops.

Yesenia's story

Yesenia is 25 years old and single. She has no children but she is the owner of her adobe house, which she was given by her parents. Yesenia grew up in the country and learned to work as a farmer. She now has a plot of land where she grows coffee and cacao. These crops are her main source of income and she is dedicated in her work as these are products that allow her to earn a good income.

When Yesenia started this work, she did not think it was easy but she wasa able to follow family tradition and earn an income from the job that she likes most. Yesenia usually fertilises her land with organic manure as coffee from this region is known for its high quality that results from the climate. Yesenia is lucky to be able to count on various buyers from across the region who pay coffee growers a fair price. This is Yesenia's first Kiva loan and she is grateful for the support she is receiving in order to get ahead. She promises to make her payments on time. On this occasion Yesenia is applying for a loan of 1000 Nuevo Soles in order to buy organic manure.
