Angel's story

Angel is a 47-year-old married man. Currently he works selling cotton in the city of Pisco, Peru. He learned this work thanks to his parents who, with great effort, left him the inheritance of these hectares of land and the production of this crop. He has worked in this job for four years and is very happy for the progress that he has been making in these months.

Currently he wants the Kiva lenders to help him so he can buy the fertilizer, pesticide, and guano that is necessary to develop the lands where he works. He knows that with a lot of effort, dedication, and investment he will be able to create for himself a better quality of life and improve his income. In this way his wife will feel comfortable and content with him. He also wants to be able to improve the appearance of his house, since it is made only of straw mats.
