Alejandro
Alejandro is a single 22-year old man and lives in his parents' house. From the time he was very young, he always participated in the family's various economic activities so that they could support themselves. He now works full-time growing organic cacao. Further, as a way of thanking him for his hard work, his parents have graciously given him his own plot of land so he can work independently.

At first he had difficulties getting his crops going, but with time he has perfected his procedures and is now a skilled farmer. He wishes to acquire more land so that he can expand his production and grow both organic cacao and coffee.

This is his first experience with Kiva, and he is very grateful for the loan opportunity. He believes that such loans will be a helpful tool for his work. He is seeking 1,500 nuevos soles in order to buy bags of organic fertilizer and cacao plants for transplanting. He hopes that he will be able to recoup his investment with the next harvest.
