Cesar Antonio's story

Cesar is a 42-year-old man. He lives in the city of Nazca with his wife and son, both of whom he loves. They are the main purpose in his life. He is a very friendly, hardworking and enthusiastic person who, together with his wife, dedicates all his efforts toward moving his family forward. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources and the need to work since he was very young, Cesar could not finish high school or study a professional major.

In his free time, he likes to ride horses, and sometimes he cooks some delicious spaghetti to share with his family. On his own initiative and with much determination and dedication, Cesar works in agriculture. He works on a small plot where he farms cotton. He works every day for approximately ten hours, and he believes things are going well because of his experience and the friendly way he treats others.

Cesar is very thankful for Kiva lenders, because with this help he will be able to cover his crop's maintenance, fertilizer and irrigation expenses. In this way, Cesar will be able to develop his crop adequately to obtain a good profit from his sale. He will continue working and trying to achieve his great dream of expanding his crops.
