Gregorio's story

Gregorio, 29, is a very hardworking, enthusiastic man because he has a strong drive to get ahead. His house is located in the city of Pisco, a city noted for its hot, welcoming climate. Fishing, agriculture and tourism are also prevalent here. Tourist attractions like the Ballestas Islands and the Paracas Candelabrum are found here. He studied up to fifth grade in secondary school but would have like to have studied to become an agronomist.

Gregorio works his parcel of land with much effort and dedication. He works about 10 hours daily and is always inspecting his crop to see that there are no infestations and that it’s well watered. He believes that he does well in business because he’s very responsible and because he loves what he does.

Gregorio is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they’ve given him he will be able to buy fertilizer, manure and products to fight infestations in order to have crops that are in good condition that will lead to a good harvest which will make it possible for him to improve his income and continue striving toward making his greatest dream a reality: to own his own farmland and to have a cattle-raising business
