Hector's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a hectare of land and look after this land.

Hector's story

Hector is 28 years old. He has a four-year-old son. Hector works for his son and to move forward with his wife. Fifteen years ago, Hector started his farming business.

"My biggest challenge was to increase the number of cacao, coffee and citrus plants in order to produce quality products and increase sales at a fair price," says Hector.

Hector is applying for this loan through Kiva in order to buy a small hectare of land to grow products and sow crops. He will also look after this land properly (laying manure and weedkiller and cleaning the land). Hector is very hard-working. In his spare time, he works as a labourer, helping to look after other land in order to increase his earnings.

For the above reasons, Hector is applying for a loan in order to improve his and his family's quality of life. The loan will help to improve production. Hector's dream is for his son to get a good education and go to university. Hector is enterprising, plucky and very hard-working. His goal is to have his own business and export quality products so that his son can be proud of him.
