Maximiliana's story

Maximiliana is 35 years old. She lives with her husband, the father of her 2 small children, in a home made of adobe. Maximiliana earns her living though the production of organic cacao and other profitable products in her area. She began over 17 years ago. She is fortunate to have a very productive land and quality product that she obtains by working responsibly and giving the necessary care to her crops of cacao, barbasco, and more. She has 3 hectares of farm land where she performs her daily work. She usually performs maintenance tasks on each crop, mainly the removal of weeds, cutting stems, and constant fertilization with compost of organic fertilizer. This is her third time applying for a loan with Kiva and, so far, she has been characterized as a borrower who makes timely repayments of her debts. She wants to have this opportunity to acquire 3,000 new cacao plants and others to replace outdated plots on her farmland and also to buy fertilizers in bulk.
