A loan helped to do weeding and pruning, and to buy organic fertilizers for his cacao plot.

Rodrigo's story

Rodrigo is 43 years old. He lives with his partner and his six children in the village of 20 de Mayo, town of San Jose de Sisa in the El Dorado province of Peru's department of San Martin. Here, he makes a living from cacao production, which he sells in the same area.

Rodrigo will invest the loan in the weeding and pruning of four hectares of cacao, as well as the purchase of organic fertilizer. This will ensure production for the next season, increasing his income and letting him provide his children with a better education.
