Felipe
Felipe, who is 28 years old, is married to Emi and has two children, with whom he lives in his own house. Felipe's business is selling agricultural products such as cocoa seeds, coffee seeds, organic fertilizer, and bananas, among others. Every morning he sets up his table in front of his house and offers up all his products, attending to his customers in a very friendly way. Most of these are his own neighbors, and they in turn recommend him to other people, who over time become regular customers.

He began more than two years ago with a private loan, buying and selling in small quantities, which he is gradually increasing in accordance with demand, and so far he runs the business by himself. He also comments that he likes his business because he knows about agriculture, and he decided to start it because he needed to be able to rely on his own income and to have a trade, as the allowance for his children was not enough and he had financial problems.

This is first loan with Kiva and he is very happy to know that he has a financial support, as he now feels sure of making progress with his business. For his part, he promises to make his repayments punctually.
With the requested loan amount of 1,500 Nuevos Soles, he will buy organic fertilizer and seeds to sell in his business.

Todas las mañanas instala su mesa en el frontis de su casa y oferta todos sus productos, atendiendo muy amablemente a sus clientes quienes son en su mayoría sus propios vecinos, y ellos lo recomiendan a otras personas que con el tiempo se vuelven sus clientes habituales. Se inició hace más de 02 años con un préstamo particular, comprando y vendiendo en pocas cantidades, para luego ir aumentando de acuerdo a la demanda, hasta el momento lo realiza solo. Además comenta que le gusta su negocio pues conoce de agricultura y se decidió a empezar por la necesidad de contar con un ingreso propio y tener un oficio pues la pensión para sus hijos no les alcanzaba y tenía apuros económicos.
Este es su primer crédito con Kiva y está muy contenta de saber que tiene un apoyo financiero, ya que así se siente segura de avanzar con su negocio. Por su parte se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual.
Con el monto solicitado de 1500 nuevo soles, comprará abono orgánico y semillas para venderlo en su negocio.
