Sebastian
Sebastian lives in Huánuco. He is single and has two children who are his great pride and for whom he works with perseverance to be able to support. Originally he grew coffee but with time he came to realize that selling bananas was more profitable so he decided to try out this product. Today he is working on cleaning out and installing water and sewage systems in his farm house. Thanks to the lenders at Kiva this model father can buy supplies to be able to fertilize his crops. Then he can produce higher quality product and sell them at a good price. By doing this he can realize one of his dreams which is to be a leader in the sales of agricultural products.
