Amador
36-year old Amador has lived common-law with his partner Rosina for fourteen years. They have three children whom they take care of in their own home located in Huasahuasi. Amador grows potatoes, peas, gladioli flowers, and beans on land that he rents on an annual basis. He has 18 years experience so has learned all there is to know about farming. Each harvest brings in a good profit when he sells the produce in the wholesale market in town.

The main difficulty that Amador faces is the lack of help. He has to hire labourers to help him look after his fields. For this reason he is thinking of investing in a business to buy and sell garden produce and peas. He would be able to earn more money by selling at retail prices.

Amador belongs to the Progreso Carita Community Bank. This is his seventh loan with Kiva partner MFP, and he is grateful for all the support he has received over the years. He plans to use this loan to buy several sacks of manure to spread on his fields of peas. He will also buy vegetables and start his new vegetable-selling business.
