Jose Santiago's story

José, 43, is in a relationship and has three children. He wasn't able to attend school because he had to work from a young age to contribute to the household. His partner works selling vegetables.

José works in agriculture and also goes out in his vehicle with his partner to sell vegetables. He learned to work the land from a very young age, and he started selling vegetables six years ago. He goes one kilometer to get to his plot of farmland, and for the vegetable sales he and his partner make long runs to sell the product.

In the past José was supported with a Kiva loan that he invested in agriculture, and he managed to pay off the debt with effort. Now José needs another loan to buy vegetables and continue making sales.

He dreams of increasing his vegetable sales and giving his children an academic education. The loan will be very helpful to him in realizing this.
