A loan helped to rent a tractor to work his lands, so they will be ready for the next season.


Andrea's story

Andrea is 65 years old. He remembers his first Kiva loan 4 years ago, and he really appreciates Kiva lenders' support. At the time of his first loan, only a small part of his land was workable and he could provide only a little for his family. Now, thanks to two Kiva loans, he is working all of his lands.

Andrea lives with his wife and one of his sons in their village house. He continues in his agricultural activities, with the difference that he is now able to provide more for his family. He hopes for Kiva lenders' support a third time in order to rent a tractor to work his lands, so they will be ready for the next season.

Andrea is pictured here next to a part of this year's harvest of white beans. He leaves the beans in open space for a while to dry so they become resistant to humidity.
