A loan of $850 helped to buy fertilizer and animal feed.

Carlos's story

Carlos, 51, is a father living with his spouse and three children in his care. He lives with his family in his own house located in one of the settlements that make up Tambogrande District. The zone they live in is considered to be rural and does not have basic services. His activity is raising cattle, sheep, pigs and barnyard fowl that he sells in the local market when they reach ideal size and weight. He farms growing corn twice a year. He has more than 15 years’ experience in agriculture and animal husbandry. In addition, he’s also employed as a day laborer in a mango plantation and earns a monthly salary.

Carlos is requesting a 2,200 new sol loan to buy feed for his cattle and to buy fertilizer for the corn. He’s worked with Kiva funds previously and has done very well; he’s very grateful for that and noting the pleasant experience he’s had has decided to call on Kiva lenders once again so that they’ll help him get ahead. He gives thanks in advance for the support provided.
