Richar, 31, lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and small son. He is a very kind, hard-working, enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, dedicates all his efforts to providing for his family. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work, Richard was unable to get a degree in gastronomy as he would have liked.
On his own initiative, Richar works in agriculture and owns a small patch of land where he grows potatoes. He works every day in the field for about ten hours and believes things are going well for him because of his dedication and hard work.
Richar is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to their help he is able to pay for irrigation, fertilizing and harvesting costs for his crop. Richar is sure of having a good harvest, allowing him to continue working so he can reach his goal of expanding his cropland.
