Luis
Luis, age 43, is a responsible man who lives with his three children. They reside in a house that was offered to them 15 years ago by members of the community. Luis currently has large plots of farmland in the upper district of his town. There he works every day from the first rays of sunlight and continues tirelessly so that he can improve his crops. Luis says he greatly enjoys taking care of his crops because his success is dependent on the harvest. His main crops consist of peas and corn, which have yielded good results. “My crops are watered by the local spring since my land is located in the higher part of town,” Luis confirms.


He now wants to continue improving his crops so that he can get a higher price at harvest. Luis knows how to achieve this goal. He owns two bulls, so he can save on the cost of plowing and invest the money toward improving his crops. This is his first Kiva loan, so Luis promises to be punctual with his payments. He will invest 1,000 PEN in the purchase of organic fertilizer so that he can nourish his crops.
