A loan helped to buy agricultural supplies and pay the rent for the parcel to raise basic grains.


José Ernesto's story

José is in a relationship, and his partner is a housewife. He has 8 children, 5 of whom depend on him and go to school.

José has many years of experience in agriculture. He walks two and a half kilometers from his house to the parcel [of land] that he plants, and he works during the morning. Previously, he worked in fishing.

He needs the loan to buy agricultural supplies and pay the rent for the parcel [of land] to raise basic grains.

José dreams of increasing his income and that his children will continue their education.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.


This loan is special because:

It enables farmers to plant basic grains to feed their families.
