A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.


Angelino's story

Angelino, age 45, is an exemplary man. He dedicated his life to his 68 year old mother, whom he cares for with much love in his own house. His extensive farmland motivated him to devote his life to this business. When he was little, his parents taught him how to care for the land and make it productive. He states that, thanks to his education, he is now one of the best farmers in his village. Every four months he plants peas, beans, and chamomile. He sells them at the city wholesale market, where he frequently travels. He now wishes to improve his crops in order to get more earnings. This is his first loan with Kiva, and he is grateful for the support he has received. It helps him to invest in his crops. He pledges to be punctual with his payments. He likes be honest and responsible. Angelino will use the 1,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer to nourish his fields.
