A loan of $450 helped seed and working capital.

Senon's story

Senon was born on June 2, 1973 in the province of Padilla in the Santa Cruz department. He has three school-aged children and is marred to Serafina. His wife helps him with his farming. He bought a parcel of land in Santo Corazon, where they now live and work the land. They grow watermelon, corn, and rice. They also have a truck that delivers lumber to carpenters. He has been working with Empender for the past four years and has had some luck. He is a responsible hard worker and pays his debts on time. He will use the money from this loan to buy seed and to increase his working capital. He would like to build a home someday. He is very grateful to Empender and Kiva for the trust they have placed in him in helping obtain this loan.
