Pedro is 77 and has been farming his fields and raising chickens for several years now. He tells us that with the previous loan he was able to buy chemicals for his fields, as well as animals.

He is very happy because he has the opportunity for a new loan, as he tells us he needs to buy more seeds, fertilizer for his fields, as well as animals. His dream is to expand his livestock business, and for that he needs more capital. He hopes that Kiva can provide him with the support he needs.
