A loan helped a member to buy seeds and fertilizer in order to grow vegetables.


Dúo Esmeralda De Magdalena Group's story

María Marina is a member of the 'Esmeralda de Magdalena' duo. She is 50 years old and has been making a living from agriculture for many years in the community of Magdalena Milpas Altas. She is asking for a loan so that she can buy fertilizer and seeds to plant peas, zucchini and green beans. Her goal is to prepare her land so that she gets a good harvest.

She is very happy and very grateful for the help Kiva is giving her. With her first loan she was able to plant a lot more seeds and generate more income. She hopes that Kiva will help her again with the loan she has requested.
