A loan of $400 helped to buy more animals and balanced feed.

Eduardo's story

Eduardo is 49 years old. He lives with his partner and a son in Olmos district, in a settlement near the urban part of the district. It is a farming area with quite a bit of commercial agriculture. It is part of Lambayeque province and located more than an hour and a half from the city of Chiclayo.

He raises and sells sheep and goats. He has been in this business for many years, and is extremely knowledgeable in this field. He buys animals from his neighbors and acquaintances and raises them at his home. When they have attained a good size and weight, he sells them in the city of Chiclayo.

Eduardo is requesting a loan of 1,000 nuevos soles to buy more animals and balanced feed. With this investment, he will be able to increase his income, in order to better meet his family's expenses.

He has previously had a loan financed by Kiva and it went quite well. Now he wishes to continue his growth as a businessperson and has again drawn upon Kiva funding so that he can move forward.

He is quite grateful to the people who helped him at that time, and also thanks in advance the people who will help him on this occasion.
