Armando's story

Armando is 40 years old and he lives in a rented house with his spouse Herlinda, who is 40, and their two children. At his locale, he is considered an honest and very hard working man who is willing to get his family ahead with his hard work and perseverance. Armando works in agriculture on rented land. On the land he grows potatoes, peas, and gladiola flowers. He also raises cows, bulls, pigs and donkeys. Armando wants to plant in greater quantities so that he can obtain more food. He also hopes to set up a store of food items in his house. This will allow him to offer a good quality of life to his loved ones. This is his third loan with KIVA and he is grateful for the financial support he has received. Armando will invest the S/.3000 soles in buying organic fertilizer to feed his crops.
