Santos Rubén's story

Santos, age 61, did not go to school due to his family's financial situation. He is in a relationship, and his life partner devotes herself to the household chores. He has a daughter, who is now independent.

Santos has been growing basic grains for 20 years. He learned this work from his parents. The land where he works is one kilometer from his house. He also has experience raising cattle. Thanks to his previous Kiva loan he was able to continue working, and he is repaying the loan punctually.

He needs a new loan to buy a cow to raise.

Santos dreams of having more cattle that will provide milk in order to sell dairy products.
