A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fertilizers and manure to keep her coffee crops well-maintained.


Ana Dilia's story

Ana Dilia is 27 years old and in a common-law marriage. She is a farmer and a homemaker, and she has one newborn son. Ana Dilia finished the fourth grade, but she was unable to stay in school because her parents did not have enough money. Her parents taught her how to work the land at a very young age, maintaining the family tradition of farming, which has been passed on for generations. Every day, Ana Dilia and her husband walk 20 minutes to reach their fields, which they own thanks to a family inheritance.

Ana Dilia is requesting this loan from Kiva and the field partner to buy fertilizers and manure to keep her coffee crops well-maintained. She says that coffee growing is her family’s only source of income. Ana Dilia says that her goal is to improve her coffee and to grow more varieties. She hopes that her coffee will compete in the marketplace, like Borbone and other successful varieties, because of its quality and flavor. Ana Dilia dreams to improve her family’s quality of life and to move ahead with her plans to be successful. She says that her priorities are her son’s education and strengthening her family’s legacy.
