A loan of $450 helped to buy farm supplies and pay labor costs.

Juan Angel's story

Juan, 48, lives in Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí Municipality. He’s the father of three children and works in agriculture; he’s a coffee grower. He’s a Kiva client and is very grateful for the support provided because thanks to his first loan he’s been able to gradually buy farm supplies and pay labor costs for his coffee crops. Despite the problem he had with an infestation that affected his coffee he succeeded in bringing in a harvest that allowed him to repay the loan and sell the part of the harvest that was undamaged. He now needs a second loan to continue investing in the same way: buying fertilizer, manure, insecticide and paying labor costs. One of his goals is to expand the size of his organic coffee crop.
