A loan of $1,375 helps to buy agricultural supplies to grow potatoes.

Bartola’s story

Bartola is a mother who is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to her loans, she has succeeded in getting ahead and her life has improved. But she isn’t a person who is willing to settle, so she is requesting a loan that she will invest in the purchase of agricultural supplies for maintaining her potato crop.

Bartola is completely confident that this loan will help her continue changing her life and that of her family.

This loan is special because:

It targets low-income borrowers who can’t access typical microfinance loans.
