A loan of $1,125 helped buy manure, fertilizer etc.

Alan Dennis's story

30-year old Alan is single and lives with his parents and siblings in the town of Camaná, known for its warm climate and beautiful beaches. Alan is a hardworking, diligent man with a great sense of humour. In his free time he likes to play football with his friends and siblings, and sometimes cooks a delicious meal of 'seco de pollo' to share with his family. Unfortunately, because of lack of money, he wasn't able to go to college, but he still dreams of being able to study agriculture.

Thanks to his enterprising attitude and a wish to help his family, Alan found a job in agriculture and has a small piece of land where he grows beans. He spends about 12 hours a day working on his land. He enjoys running his business as he has always liked working on the land.

He is very grateful to Kiva donors as it is through their help that he will be able to buy manure and fertilizer and care for his fields. His harvest will be good, and he will increase his income. Then he will be able to fulfill his greatest dreams of studying agriculture at college and helping his family get ahead.
