A loan of $1,500 helped to buy supplies for her coffee crop.

Alba Luz's story

Thanks for the help from the Kiva lenders, in cooperation with COMIXMUL, Alba used her first loan to buy farming supplies that she needed for her coffee crops. They needed urea which gave them a better color, foliage which allows them to better develop. She also bought a product called metalozato which prevented the harvest from freezing. Her life before this loan was very difficult because she had to borrow money from individuals at high interest rates and she had to put the harvest up as collateral and she received a low price for it. Everything changed because of these funds. Now Alba is asking for a second loan to buy coffee since she was able to repay the previous loan and she invested her profits to improve her crops that were affected by a blight and she needs to help them.
