A loan helped to buy more fertilizers to sell to smaller farmers in his village in order to increase his income.


Alexandre's story

Alexandre is a 32-year-old Mozambican man. He lives in Chimoio with his wife and their three children.

Alexandre has been a producer since he was young. He learned agriculture from his parents. After that, he had his own portion of land and started producing crops, first to feed the family, then he found a business opportunity by helping other smallholder farmers to sell their products.

Nowadays, Alexandre is a trusted agent in his community since he sells certified agricultural inputs to smaller farmers. Thanks to this activity, Alexandre was able to build a small store in his house where he keeps the agricultural inputs, mainly certified fertilizers.

He dreams to increase his store and business, and thus, to improve his family's living conditions. This is why he keeps working everyday to fulfill his dreams.

Alexandre is requesting a Kiva loan to buy more fertilizers to sell to smaller farmers in his village in order to increase his income.


This loan is special because:

It allows farmers access to new markets and agricultural resources.
