A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Paulina's story

Paulina, 30, is married to Fortunato, 33, and has a daughter who lives with her and her husband in their well-made house. She grew up in the countryside with her parents, who taught her how to farm, and this is now her main income source. When she reached adulthood, she inherited land from her parents, who recognized how hard she had worked over the years. She now farms with her husband, with whom she plants the crops. Sometimes, she hires other workers to do difficult tasks and to harvest.

To improve her harvests, she usually buys manure. This is her fourth loan cycle with Kiva, and she is grateful for the funding she receives to keep going. She promises to make her payments on time. She has applied to Kiva for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles to buy organic fertilizer.
