Felix Pedro's story

Félix, Kiva client, is from Rosario in the region of Pueblo Nuevo and municipality of Estelí. He's a farmer, married, and father of three children. He farms corn, beans, and vegetables. He's thankful to Kiva for the support provided through loans, since it has helped to achieve his expectations of good yields and quality harvest. The last credit was used to buy agricultural inputs and pay for manual labor to sow 0.88 acres (½ manzana) of cucumber.

Currently, he needs the new loan to invest more in his products, purchasing agricultural inputs and paying for manual labor. This time, he will sow 3.5 acres (2 manzanas) of corn and 0.88 acres (½ manzana) of beans since the season in which the product is sold at a good price is coming up. He believes that this investment will be helpful to increase his income even more. This will help to secure his family's well-being. His future plans, after paying off the loan, are to use the earnings to diversify his products and expand his planting area.

Félix hopes to keep counting on Kiva's support to get ahead with his family.
