Adriel's story

Adriel, 33, lives in the city of Nazca. A city characterized by its warm weather and above all for its agricultural development, especially cultivating prickly pear, beans, cotton etc.

Also there are tourist attractions such as "The Nazca Lines" which attract a lot of tourist year round.

Adriel is the father of two little ones and he and his wife strive every day to give them the best and to provide them with a good life.

Due to his poor economic resources he was not able to finish high school but he would've liked to have studies at the university.

Day to day Adriel works very hard as a farmer, he works about seven hours a day and is always aware of his harvest especially now during the height of the sowing season, ensuring that the seeds germinate and are in good condition.

He believes things are going well for him because he is responsible and is dedicated to his job.

Adriel is very thankful to the Kiva lenders. This is the second time that they give their valuable support. He will be able to buy fertilizer, vitamins and cover the costs of irrigation.

This way he can have a better income and a good harvest which will allow him to keep striving and fighting for his biggest dream "having your own home".
