A loan of $1,500 helped to buy improved vegetable seeds.


Blanca's story

Blanca is married and has an adult daughter. She lives in her own house, which has two rooms, brick walls, and dirt floors and is located in Palomar in La Paz department. She farms and grows vegetables, and she has to pay for food and basic services with the scarce income she earns. She works long hours, but her output is low as Blanca is older. She has applied for a loan to buy improved seed, which would be a great help to her because it requires less irrigation, conserves the earth, and grows faster and cleaner. Blanca dreams of earning more and raising cattle to improve her living conditions, but that requires more income. This will be her third loan cycle with Kiva.
