A loan of $1,500 helped to buy agricultural supplies and certified seeds for potato cultivation.

Francisca's story

Doña Francisca is very happy because thanks to the financing provided by investors through KIVA, in alliance with the cooperative COMIXMUL, she was able to to buy agricultural supplies such as fertilizer and fumigation materials for her crops. This was a sound business decision, and in addition to the security it provided, allowing her to know that her produce was well protected, she also knew that she would obtain an excellent harvest at the end of the season. The produce that she grew was sold to different buyers in her area, and Francisca was very satisfied that she could repay COMIXMUL and now request a second loan. With this new loan, she now plans to buy further agricultural supplies including certified high quality potato seeds. She is already working daily to prepare her fields for plantiong, in order to minimize costs that could lead her to overrun her budget. Francisca hopes to receive this loan to comply with her goals, plans and dreams.
