Pedro Eladio's story

Pedro is a 48 years old man, he lives in the city of Camaná with his partner and he has 2 children who are already grown up. In his spare time he likes to go for walks with his partner by the bank of a nearby river and in some occasions he cooks a delicious sauté fillet steak to spend pleasant times with his family. Unfortunately due to lack of financial resources he wasn't able to attend university, but he would have very much liked to do so. Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit, and his will to get ahead, Pedro works in agriculture; he has a piece of land where he grows beans. He does this for about 12 hours every day. He enjoys his business very much, since he has always liked the countryside activities. Pedro is very thankful to Kiva lenders, since thanks to the help provided he will be able to buy fertilizers and do maintenance of the crop. In this way he will be able to support the harvest of his crop and increase his income, and in a nearby future, he hopes he will be able to rent lands for sowing.
