Pedro's story

Pedro is a 55-year-old client who lives with his wife and two children in La Matanza. This community has more than 10,000 inhabitants overall.

Pedro has been working growing and selling plantains for the last 8 years; he learned this activity from his parents. He has a parcel of land located in the Carrasco sector, 15 minutes from La Matanza.

The loan that he is requesting is for 2,500 soles, which will be invested in growing plantains. It will specifically be used for purchasing urea and associated items to maintain his plantain production.

Pedro is a recurring client for the lending partner. He has been working with one loan for the amount of 2,000 soles, and his payments have been punctual with no late payments, as the loan provided was with Kiva's rate.
