Pedro's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase fertilizers and compost in order to improve his crop.

Pedro's story

Pedro is single and lives in the municipality of Coello. He was born into the bosom of a humble rural family who found in agricultural work an alternative way to live, and it was there that he learned everything that he knows today about crop management and raising animals.

At age 63, he owns a fruit growing business.

With the aim of strengthening his business he is requesting the support of a loan, with which he will purchase fertilizers and compost in order to improve his crop. In this way, he will increase production and be able to sell more, which will result in an increase in income.

Pedro dreams of expanding his business with more crops. If you want to know more about the entrepreneurs and the loans from Interactuar, you can join the Lending Team called: “Friends of Interactuar Colombia”: http://www.kiva.org/team/interactuar_colombia"
