A loan of $1,450 helped purchase corn and beans.


Jose Elias's story

José is a Kiva client and he is very thankful for his first loan because it helped him to invest in the sowing of his land and to earn more money. The loan allowed him to purchase the oxen that he needed to plow his land and he was also able to plant basic grains. Because of this, he is in need of a second loan in order to invest in the purchase of corn and beans. With the earnings that he generates from the harvest, he will be able to get a better yield from his harvest that he will be able to sell at a good price and obtain more earnings. His future plans are to improve the infrastructure of his house.
