Moises Erasmo's story

Moisés is a 44-year-old man. He lives in the town of Nazca with his wife and two children, whom he loves; they're his main reason for getting ahead. He's a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person with a lot of drive to succeed. Unfortunately, Moisés couldn't study for a professional career, but he would have liked to have studied for a career in business administration. In his free time, he enjoys taking a little time to read. On some occasions, he cooks a delicious "seco de res" (cilantro beef stew) that he shares with his family.
On his own initiative, and with a lot of enthusiasm, Moisés works in agriculture. He owns a small plot of land where he grows lima beans and potatoes. He starts working on the land from the early hours of the morning. He works an average of 10 hours a day on his business. Moisés feels good doing his work, and he believes that he does well because of his dedication.
Moisés is very thankful to Kiva lenders, since thanks to their help he'll be able to purchse fertilizer and pesticide for his crop. That way he'll be able to remove the pests and fertilize his crop. Moisés hopes that by doing that, his crop will grow properly. He wishes to sell it and get profits that he'll gradually save in order to ensure his children's education and well-being.
