A loan helped to buy fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides for his crop of basic grains.


Fernando Baltazar's story

Fernando, age 21, is single and lives with his mother and sisters.

Fernando works in agriculture. He plants corn and beans. He learned this work thanks to his mother. The parcel [of land] that he plants is close to his house, and his work schedule is from 5:30 am to 12:00 noon. In addition, he works as the manager of a farm.

He needs the loan to buy fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides for his crop of basic grains.

Fernando dreams of always supporting his family.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Pam McMurry.


This loan is special because:

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