Luis Ernesto
Luis is a 57 years old, single man who lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona. He is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic individual who possessed of a great desire to get ahead in life. Unfortunately, due to lack of financial resources and to the need to work from a young age, he never had the opportunity to receive an education in agriculture. In his free time he likes to see movies and on occasion he cooks a delicious Chicharron de Chancho to share with his family. On his own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Luis started working in agriculture. He has a small plot where he plants corn. He works every day for about 12 hours and believes that he is doing well thanks to his experience and to the friendly service he provides to others.

Luis finds himself very grateful for the Kiva loans, seeings thanks to the help provided he will be able to purchase compost, fertilizer, and other products. This way he will be able to ensure that what he sows will grow well and he will be able to bring in a good harvest. If he continues working and putting forth tremendous effort to get ahead, his big dream is to increase his plantings.
