A loan helped to purchase fertilizer and compost.

Santos Eligio's story

Santos is 58-years old. He lives in the village of La Criba in Ubillal. He has earned his living for a number of years raising livestock and selling milk. He also has 51 blocks of land where he grows corn and pastureland.

Santos has his own well, but he doesn't have electricity. He lives in a rural area that power hasn't been brought to yet. Santos is a very hard-working person who takes responsibility for the debts he acquires. He is grateful to Prisma and Kiva for the help they have provided with this loan.

Santos hopes you will help him to invest in compost and fertilizer so he can improve his corn and watermelon crop for the season. His goal is to see his livestock in good health so he can offer a quality product to his customers.
