A loan of $1,425 helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Maria Romana's story

María Romana is very happy because she was able to use her first loan to buy supplies needed for her pineapple crop that she was able to apply and get a good, healthy harvest as a result. She had excellent pineapple production that she was able to sell for a very good price as planned and she was able to repay her loan.

Profits were very good and she reinvested part of them into her crops and the other part was used to prepare the soil once again, to clear weeds for the next planting and to pay labor costs to plant a bit more. There was a change in her business because production improved thanks to the initial loan and so did her quality of life because she earned the expected income and even surpassed it.

This time she’s decided on a second loan to increase production because she’s unable to fully meet customer demand with the amount she’s currently growing. She hopes to be helped again to continue enjoying the benefits that Comixmul cooperative in alliance with KIVA provides to support people of scarce resources.
