A loan of $1,050 helped to buy farm supplies for her potato crops.


Maria Santos's story

María is very happy to have bought, with her first loan, farm supplies for her potato crops. The harvest was plentiful and she managed to get a very good price out of it. Not only was she able to easily repay her loan, she also invested the rest in her farm. She is very grateful for the help received, which enabled her to increase production, and thanks Kiva lenders for the improvement to her standard of living that was brought about by the expected higher income she derived from her crops. This motivated her to ask for a second loan in oder to buy farm supplies for the coming harvest, and especially to prevent a potato psyllid plague. She hopes for support on this occasion and dreams of reaping a good harvest again.
