Eulogio
Eulogio is 37 years old and he is married to Veronica. They have 4 children and they all live together in their own home.

For the past 21 years, he has been working in agriculture. He mostly grows coffee, bananas, and avocados. He enjoys working the land because of the freedom and because he can work the hours he chooses. However, it is very tiring work, especially during harvest time when he has to hire workers to help him.

Now that he has a wife and children, he does the same work but puts in much more effort because the household expenses are higher and he wants his family to get ahead. He has 2 hectares of land on which he grows coffee. Each year his harvest yields about 15 bags of coffee, but this year he believes he can increase production. Sales are good but Eulogio would like to produce more and so he has plans to continue coffee production because coffee is more profitable than his other crops.

This is his third Kiva loan and he is very thankful for the financial support that he is receiving so that he can get by. He promises to comply with the repayment schedule and to always pay punctually.

Eulogio will invest the 2000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer so that his crops are healthy.

Eulogio, de 37 años está casado con Verónica y tiene 4 hijos con quienes vive en su casa propia
Hace 21 años que este hombre trabajador se dedica a la agricultura. Produce principalmente café, plátanos y paltas. Menciona que, le agrada trabajar en el campo, por la libertad y por la disposición de su tiempo. “Pero es muy cansado, especialmente en las cosechas, porque se tiene que contratar más personal”, comenta.
Ahora que ya tiene una esposa e hijos, realiza esta misma actividad pero con más ahínco, porque los gastos son mayores como el deseo de progresar y brindar a su familia lo mejor. Cuenta con 2 héctareas de plantaciones de café. Al año cosecha 15 sacos, pero este año cree que aumentará su producción. Las ventas son buenas, pero Eulogio quisiera producir más, por lo que tiene planeado continuar con la producción de café, porque es más rentable. Este es su tercer crédito con KIVA, y se siente agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual.
Eulogio, invertirá los S/.2000 soles en la compra de abono orgánico para nutrir sus sembríos.
