A loan of $400 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Juan's story

Juan, age 60, lives with his wife Isabel. They have six children together. Only two of them live with them in their own home. Juan is a farmer, so he has land which he was able to acquire with a lot of hard work. He sows potatoes and peas, which he most likes to do because it makes him a monthly income and these are the products with the greatest demand in the central market in his area. The businesses give him a good purchase price. He is thinking of buying more land to farm. He will sow not only potato but also other local produce. This is his fourth loan on Kiva. He is happy to have this financial support. He promises to be punctual with the payment of his quotas. Juan will invest the 1,000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to provide nutrients to his crops.
