A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a motor for his vegetable watering system.


Gustavo's story

Gustavo, age 37, and his life companion, Josefina, have two children. He struggles untiringly for them. He does this because he wants to be able to give them everything that he was not able to have.

Gustavo has been growing and selling vegetables for over seven years. He does this with the help of his family. The loan he is requesting is to be able to buy a greater capacity motor in order to improve his watering system. He wants to be able to invest in his garden, which is his main source of income.

He is very grateful to the foundation and Kiva for the possibility of a loan. This way he will increase his income and help his family.
