A loan of $375 helped to buy compost.

Ilenia's story

Ilenia is 36 years old. She is married and lives with her 4 children in her house made ​​from quality construction materials. Ilenia has been working in agriculture with the help of her husband for over 15 years, thanks to some land they were able to acquire shortly after getting married.

She has various fields of organic cacao, achiote, peanuts, and fruit trees. She has two acres of land that she has been working on with great dedication and effort to get financial support for her family. She is very conscientious about her work as it is necessary to have a good productive season, through intensive care to keep her plantations weed-free, and to fertilize the soil with compost.

This is the third Kiva loan she has requested and she is very grateful for the opportunity to allow her to get ahead. She also agrees to pay her dues on time. She hopes for 1,000 new soles to invest in her land with the purchase of compost.
