Demetrio's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase organic fertilizer for his sown fields.
Demetrio, 47, is married to Victoria and they have 2 children whom live with them in their house made of adobe. Demetrio is a farmer and works on his lands where he has diverse profitable products in his area such as cocoa, coffee and banana plants. He has been doing this work for 20 years. He always has the support of his wife and at harvest time he hires workers to speed up the cultivation and to sell the products to buyers. The lands that he has at the moment are the result of his efforts. His main problem is transport as his lands are in remote areas but this doesn't discourage him to continue on. This is his first loan with Kiva and he is thankful for the financial support he is receiving to continue ahead. In addition, he promises to pay his monthly payments on time. At this time he wishes to request 1,000 Peruvian Soles to purchase organic fertilizer and to nourish his sown fields.
