A loan of $800 helped to buy fertiliser and to pay for machinery to grind fodder.

Duvan De Jesus's story

Duvan has decided to apply for another loan for growing corn and for looking after his cattle. He wants to continue working in these two areas. So as to begin the planting season he needs to buy fertiliser and, for the cattle, he will rent a machine for grinding the fodder that he feeds them.

With his previous loan, Duvan demonstrated that he increased his harvest which he used to generate more income for the family. As a result he paid costs such as his children's education. With the investment from Kiva, Duvan has improved his living conditions and he keeps the family stable.
