Magno's story

Magno is 34 years old, married and has 2 children. He is one of those determined and hard working people who has proven that these characteristics, combined with appropriate and responsible financial support, can bear fruit (or lemons in his particular case). He has previously taken two successful credits with Edpyme Alternativa, supported by Kiva, and his lemon crop business continues to help him support his family. Magno lives in a rural area in Northern Peru with no basic water or electricity services. He grows lemons, which he harvests on a weekly basis. He has also started raising a couple of animals, which he sells in the local market, in order to have a diversified income stream. He has a long history of experience in agriculture and carries out this activities in his own backyard. This time he is looking to get a loan of 2000 soles (PEN) in order to buy fertilizers and to clean his lemon crop, so that his crop can remain of good quality.
