A loan of $1,350 helped to buy stolons (strawberry offshoots) and farming supplies.

Maria Purificacion's story

Maria used her first loan from COMIXMUL and Kiva lenders to buy stolons (strawberry plants) as well as fertilizer and foliar products, which she used on her crops. She successfully planted her strawberry crops and harvested 600 boxes. She sold her product at the local market and made a great profit, which allowed her to pay off her loan obligation on time. She is grateful to all the Kiva lenders who helped her meet her goals and make her hopes a reality. They have enabled her to make her small strawberry-growing business work.

This time she is requesting the support of a new loan in order to buy more stolons, fertilizer, and foliar products, since she has already prepared the land where she will plant a new crop of strawberries. This will allow her business to keep growing and new goals to be met.
