Adalberto Bernardino's story

Adalberto is 51 years old, single, and lives in the city of Camaná. In his spare time he likes horseback riding with his friends and sometimes cooking a delicious "Spicy Cochayuyo", a typical dish of his city. Unfortunately, because of a lack of financial resources he could not attend university, but would have liked very much to pursue a career in veterinary medicine. Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and his desire to succeed, Adalberto work in agriculture and has a field in which he grows beans, working approximately 12 hours a day. Adalberto is very comfortable in his business as he has always liked working in the fields, since their parents worked in agriculture and he grew up learning this activity. Adalberto is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, and thanks to this help, will purchase fertilizer and can perform maintenance on his crops. This way, he will be able to sustain crop cultivation and increase his income and in the not-too-distant future, he hopes to buy cattle to start another business.
