A loan of $1,825 helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizer.


Santi Pala Group's story

Wayan, as the head of the Santi Pala group, feels very proud. The group he heads succeeded in maintaining their businesses and made their payments on time. During the loan period, the farming businesses they pursued made maximum results. It's all because of the hard work and the weather that supported them. Now they can set aside the income for savings. Wayan has cacao plants. He earned a satisfactory result. And after he deducted all the costs, he was very grateful. Wayan and the Santi Pala group said thank you to lenders, Kiva and MUK for the loan support. And they hope for a new loan to continue their farming businesses. Now the dry season has arrived and the Santi Pala members changed their way of planting their garden. Now they only plant long beans, nuts, cassava, and other crops that need less water. They are using the loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer. Wayan also uses his loan to purchase seeds and fertilizer. The group and Wayan expect a maximum result at the end and they will manage their land wisely and work hard to maintain the crops to prevent insects and diseases.
