A loan helped to buy agricultural inputs for his strawberry and hydrangea crops.

Fredy Alberto's story

Fredy has been earning his living farming for three years. Every day he gets up and takes care of his land where he has crops of food and flowers in the municipality of La Union.

It is a business he learned on his own. Little by little he has perfected his technique and abilities in this field. Today he feels proud of what he has been able to build with his effort and he feels grateful to the Corporación Interactuar and the lenders at Kiva for the opportunities they provide him to progress.

He is requesting a loan to invest in the purchase of agricultural inputs for his strawberry and hydrangea crops. In this way he can maintain his land in optimum conditions for his crops.
