Luis
Luis is originally from Quimbiri. He is 39 years old and he is a very happy, hardworking man. He lives with his common-law wife, Elena, 39 years old. From their relationship they have 2 children, Judith, 15, and Antony, 6. They all live together in a house which they own. Luis started his adventure as an agriculturist when he was a young boy, working on his parents' land. His passion for agriculture brought him to acquire his own land and today he has worked independently for 18 years. He cultivates coffee and cocoa on the 10 hectares of land that he has. During the harvest season he hires farmhands to help him harvest the product quicker. This way he manages to complete his work at a greater pace. He is very committed to his business. And it is thanks to this business that today he enjoys watching his plants yield better products, earning better profits for each kilogram that he sells. When the winter season arrives he must take care to avoid insects from harming his plantations. The constant rain also impedes his work. This is his 12th loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and he is ready to make his payments on time as he wishes to access future loans. With the loan that he requests he will purchase fertilizer for his land.
