A loan of $375 helped to buy organic manure.

Genoveva's story

Genoveva, 25, is a serious young woman. She lives with her husband, Paúl, her mother and her sisters who she cares for in the house she was born in. She studied Teaching at a well-known university and completed her career a short time ago and hopes to put her skills into practice.

Her main work is in agriculture, an occupation she learned as a girl helping her mother with this hard work. She learned everything necessary to carry out her work and improve her income which made it possible for her to pay for her education and to care for her little boy. She’s growing potatoes, corn and peas but especially a particular type of starchy potato that’s her specialty.

This is her second Kiva loan and she’s grateful for this progress opportunity and promises to make her payments punctually. Genoveva will use the 1,000 soles to buy organic manure to nourish her plants.
