A loan of $925 helped to buy supplies for growing onions.

Pedro Agustin's story

Don Pedro is 37 years old and originally from Estelí. He is the father of three children, and works as a farmer and businessman. He has 15 years of experience in growing and selling vegetables.

This is his second loan with Kiva, as he had great success with the first loan which he used for growing onions. Thanks to his good sales, he was able to buy a truck that he uses to transport his products.

He is requesting the second loan to purchase supplies, fertilizers, and manure, and to pay for labor for growing onions. He also hopes that his produce will be of excellent quality and will result in good yields like his first planting.

At this stage, his children are helping him with the farming and are learning to deal with the business side of things. His primary goal is to give them a good education and raise the living standard of his family.
