Jorge
63-year-old Jorge is a modest man. He lives with his wife, Ana María, and the couple have one daughter who they care for in their rustic home that they bought 18 years ago. Jorge is a farmer. He started out gradually, planting coffee, annatto and cassava. He says that, thanks to his knowledge, he has been able to improve his crops as he weeds them and fertilizes them constantly. He has many hectares of fertile land that he constantly cares for. He is now starting his coffee harvest and hopes to be able to recoup what he lost during his last harvest as he was affected by an insect infestation a few months ago. However, as he is a skilled man, he says that his annatto crops produced well and he already has a buyer for the harvest season.

This is the second loan that Jorge has received through Kiva and he knows that he has to make his loan repayments on time. Jorge will invest the 1,500 soles he has requested in buying organic fertilizer with which to feed his soil.
