A loan of $600 helped to buy organic manure.

Lucio's story

Lucio, 28, is married to Lisbith and has a 6-year-old daughter; they all live together in his own house. Lucio works in agriculture and owns a 20-hectare parcel of land on which he has three hectares planted with organic cocoa beans; in addition he also grows bananas and corn that he grows for home consumption. He’s been in this activity for more than 10 years and likes it because he can be out in the countryside and be in contact with nature where he feels very comfortable in addition to it generating what’s needed to live comfortably and to educate his daughter who is his greatest source of pride. Because of this, he very much wants to make progress and improve his farming techniques with the purchase of a tractor.

This is his 6th loan with Kiva so he can count on your collaboration to continue with his objectives. He will use the requested 1,500 soles to buy organic manure for the cacao thus improving the quality of his crops.
