A loan of $1,100 helped to buy three sacks of soil amendments and pesticide to kill the weeds, and to pay the rent on the land where he grows corn.


Claro's story

Claro, 38, attended school up to ninth grade. He's married and his wife's a homemaker. He has four children, three of them in school.

Claro has worked in agriculture for 18 years. His older brother taught him this work, and it was a big help to him when he got married because that's how he has been able to get his family ahead.

He needs the loan to buy three sacks of soil amendments and pesticide to kill the weeds, and to pay the rent on the land where he grows corn. He was supported with a previous Kiva loan for farming and he paid it back on time.

Claro's dreams are to continue growing and to be able to help his children go to school and improve themselves academically.
