Klaber Wilfrido's story

Kleber is a man of 47 years who has two children. He lives in Puerto Quito that is an administrative area in the province of Pichincha where the capital of Ecuador is found. In this area, you can enjoy adventure tourism or relaxation tourism since it is rich in flora and fauna. It has various important waterfalls and rivers. The people in the area are dedicated mainly to farming and among the products that stick out most are cocoa and tropical fruit.

Kleber has a property where he has planted cocoa. He cultivates and harvests it to then sell it. He learned this activity from his brothers twenty years ago and today he has perfected it thanks to the knowledge passed from friends and family members. This entrepreneur wishes to expand his farm and for this he ought to invest in seed and fertilizer so he needs a loan.

Fundación Alternativa, which is an intemediary institution between Kiva and Kleber has made an loan analysis through which it has been determined that he has little risk to incur delinquency. Additionally, Fundación Alternativa will give advice and even training with which Kleber will be able to have sustainable and sustained development.

His dream is to see his children finish their studies. He wishes to improve his quality of life and that his children's needs are covered.
