Teofilo
Teofilo is 66 years old and is married to Luciana. He is proud to have provided for his children until they were adults, apart from his young daughter Sulma who is 11 years old and lives with him and his wife in their adobe house. As a farmer he is well known in the area for the work he does and because he has lived in the community for many years. He grew up with agriculture from a very young age alongside his parents, since it was the main source of income from his grandparents. He has more than 50 years' experience in this work and has always had the support of his wife with whom he has worked and dedicated his life to the wellbeing of his family. Currently he is growing cocoa, barbasco, turmeric and fruit trees such as banana and coconut.

This is his first loan with Kiva and he is grateful for the financial support he is getting to make progress in life. He also promises to pay his loan instalments punctually. On this first occasion he wants 2,000 nuevo soles to invest in his land by buying seedlings so he can replace several cocoa bushes which are in poor condition and he also wants to buy bags of organic manure to improve his crop.
