A loan of $500 helped to buy beans, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizer, etc.

Gerber Antonio's story

Gerber Antonio, age 44, lives with his life partner and their children in their own home. He grows beans and also works as a carpenter and day laborer to keep up with the household expenses. The years he's spent farming beans have given him a lot of experience that helps him to grow only the best crops. The fields where he grows are located in a productive agricultural area that is easy to get to from where he lives. He vends all around the area of his community and already has a lot of customers, as he sells produce of the highest quality at affordable prices and with unequaled service.

Gerber is a hard-working man dedicated to his work who has a big desire to get ahead. Day in and day out he makes his best effort to achieve success and never thinks of giving up. Last season he had some losses and would like to make them up this year. However, to make an investment he needs capital so he's requesting this loan from Apoyo Integral [Kiva field partner] that will allow him to buy beans, insecticides, herbicides, fertilizer, etc. Gerber Antonio has a good payment history and is sure that he can pay off the loan. At the same time, he has faith that this will afford his family a better life.
