A loan helped to buy composts and naranjilla plants to cultivate.


Edwin Wladimir's story

Edwin lives with his two children in the community of Getsemaní in Lita Parish, which is in Imbabura Province. He is 22 years old.

Edwin has been cultivating limes for four years. This product does not command a fair price locally. However, there is still great demand in the market, so many people in the area cultivate this fruit.

Edwin is requesting a loan so that he can plant one hectare of naranjilla [a subtropical fruit] in order to increase his earnings and improve his living conditions. He is very grateful to Kiva for the support that has been given.
