Alejandro
Alejandro, 55, is married to Albina and has three grown children who live with him in their wood house. Alejandro has been farming for 18 years and produces cacao. Usually he and his family do the all the work, though on occasion he hires local workers. He likes to grow cacao because the business is profitable and the harvest is easy. His clay-rich land yields a quality product.

On careful examination of his land, he noticed that some of the plantings are old and will not produce pods next season. He wants to replace them with grafting and nursery seedlings to get the best yield from his land. He also needs to buy organic fertilizer, which is essential to producing quality pods. This is his second loan cycle with Kiva. He is very grateful for the opportunity and promises to make his payments on time. With a loan of S/.2,000 soles, he will buy organic fertilizer and nursery seedlings.

Alejandro tiene 55 años de edad , esta casado con Albina y tiene 3 hijos mayores con quienes vive en su casa construida a base de madera. Alejandro desempeña actividades agrícolas desde hace 18 años razón por la cual se dedica a la producción de cacao . Por lo general el suele desempeñar sus labores con su familia y en raras ocasiones convoca a trabajadores del lugar.Le agrada mucho el tema de tratamiento de las plantaciones de cacao ya que considera es un producto muy rentable y de fácil cosecha teniendo en cuenta que sus parcelas son tierras arcillosas que favorecen una buena calidad de su producto.
En un monitoreo detallado de sus parcelas ha notado que ya existen árboles de cacao que se encuentran desfasados y por consiguiente no producirán mas frutos en la próxima temporada, es por ello que desea reemplazarlo por injertos y almacigos y así sacarle el máximo provecho a sus tierras adicionando a ello la compra de abono orgánico indispensable para garantizar frutos de calidad.Este es su segundo préstamo con Kiva y esta muy agradecido por esta oportunidad y ademas de compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual.
Con los S/.2,000 soles realizará la compra de abono orgánico y plantas de almacigo.
