Fausto's story

Fausto is 41 years old. He lives is his own home made of rustic material, together with his spouse and his young children, in the district of Pimpingos in the province of Cutervo, located in the department of Cajamarca in the country of Peru. He has many good personal and work references from the people in the area. The local people mostly work in agriculture, trade, and livestock.

Fausto works raising and fattening beef cattle, and he has been working in this field for more than 20 years. Additionally he is dedicated to the raising of small animals (hens, guinea pigs, and pigs), the cultivation of the coffee (the Catimor variety), and as of now he has 2 hectares in production and cultivates products for making staple crops such as yuca, plantains, and pituca for consumption and occasionally for sale. He also works as an agricultural laborer. He will use the loan to invest in the purchase of cattle and to ensure the health of those that he already owns. In this manner he will improve his sales and thus obtain better income and thereby have a better quality of life for himself and his family.

Fausto is a recurrent loan recipient for Kiva's field partner Edpyme Alternativa.
