Alfredo
Alfredo, 52, is a responsible man who lives with his wife and children in the house they inherited from his parents. For 30 years he has been working in agriculture and growing different kinds of food such as lima beans, potatoes, peas and other vegetables. "I grow almost everything.", he claims. He is thrilled to see that his crops command a very good price among the merchants in the town. Alfredo has quite a large plantation that he inherited from his parents who taught him everything he knows. He says he must invest between 7,000 and 10,000 PEN to begin planting, and it is a little difficult to come up with so much capital because agriculture is his ownly source of income.

Now he wants to increase his profits to earn more, so the only way to do that is by planting more crops. He takes advantage of his work to raise sheep and cattle that he later sells to butchers. This is his second Kiva loan and he is very grateful for the financial support. He is committed to paying it back on time.

The loan in the amount of 2,500 PEN will be used to buy organic fertilizer for his crops.

Alfredo de 52 años de edad, es un hombre responsable y vive junto a su esposa y sus hijos en la casa que le heredarón sus padres. Desde hace 30 años se dedica a la agricultura, en todo este tiempo pudo sembrar distintos alimentos como habas, papas, alverjas y demás hortalizas, “siembro la mayor parte de los alimentos”, afirma. Por ello se siente muy dichoso al ver como sus cosechas son muy cotizadas entre los comerciantes de la localidad. Alfredo, siembra en extensas hectáreas de terreno agrícola, que fueron heredados por parte de sus padres, quienes le enseñaron todo lo que hoy sabe del campo. Cuenta que tienen que invertir un promedio de 7 mil a 10 mil soles para comenzar a sembrar, por ello le resulta un poco difícil conseguir la totalidad del capital, ya que es la única actividad con la que solventa sus gastos económicos. Ahora desea incrementar sus ganancias para poseer un capital mayor y de esa manera sembrar en mayor cantidad. Aprovecha su trabajo para la crianza de ovejas, vacas y toros que engorda para luego vender a los carniceros.Este es el segundo crédito con Kiva y se siente muy agradecida por el apoyo financiero brindado motivo por el cual se compromete a ser puntual con el pago de sus cuotas.Alfredo, invertirá los S/.2500 soles en la compra de abono orgánico para nutrir sus sembríos.
