Hermes's story

Sr. Hermes is 29 years old and lives in Chimoré, which is in the Department of Cochabamba. He is a hardworking farmer who learned everything he knows about his trade to date from his father and brother.

Hermes is a simple person who has always been used to working in the field. At a very young age, he had to confront some very difficult situations in his life. On several occasions, he participated in investment opportunities and was taken advantage by the other partners since they did leave not leave him any profits or allow him to recover his original investment.

His situation today is much more stable since he has requested assistance from his family to help him recoup his losses. Hermes learned about the Kiva loans, so he is requesting one so that he can pay for labor and a few supplies that he needs for cultivating his land. He is single, but dreams about having a family and providing them the best that he can offer.
