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

A loan helped him to buy organic fertilizers for cocoa.

Anicson's story

Anicson, 27 years old, lives with his wife and children in the town of Chumbaquihui, Lamas, Peru, where he has cultivated cocoa for six years and has been diversifying his income by raising chickens, pigs, and harvesting bananas besides working privately in farm maintenance contracts.
He will invest this second loan in fertilizers for his cocoa parcel. Therefore, he will increase and improve his product for the next harvest. This will generate future income which will allow him to give his family a better quality of life.
