A loan of $550 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Daria's story

Daría, 52 years old, is a responsible woman. She lives with 2 of her 10 children and cares for them lovingly. She has been a widow for a long time. Now she lives in the house she bought 30 years ago.

She was born in the countryside and learned since then to nourish the fields and to take advantage of everything she was taught. When she was young she started a family and since then she has worked in agriculture. She herself has plowed the land carefully attending to it. She has many hectares of land where she grows corn, potatoes, peas and even various flowers. Now she has been a little sick, having heart problems, but still she wants to continue working on the farm, where she hopes to be able to live peacefully until the end of her days.

This is her first loan with Kiva. She is hoping for a small loan in order to achieve her plans, and she agrees to complete her payments in a timely manner. Daría will invest the 1500 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer in order to nourish her crops.
