A loan of $1,625 helped to buy seeds and compost.

Erika Valeria's story

Erika lives in Santo Domingo de los Colorados, a city well-known for being the bridge between the mountains and coast in Ecuador. She is 21 years old and is a single mother who lives with her son at her parent’s house, in an area called La Florida. It is a very productive sector.

Erika is very hardworking and always works to get her family ahead. She has planted cacao on her parent’s farmland and goes out to sell in town every week. Things have gone well for her and she needs a loan to buy seeds and compost to increase her production.

She says that she is happy with Fundación Alternativa and it’s helped her business very much. She is very grateful to Kiva for their help.
