Epifanio's story

Epifanio, 43, lives with Elida with whom he has four children. This family lives in a house they own that he, himself, built. It is located in an agricultural annex. Epifanio is a hardworking man. He is a farmer and like a good man of the fields he leaves every morning from his home, taking advantage of the sun’s first rays and carrying his tools, to cultivate his crops. He produces different varieties of potatoes, which are in high demand in the market. He understands these details because he has been a farmer for 24 years. Epifanio began planting a month ago and since he has plots in different and distant areas he just recently finished with what was pending. He already has seed potatoes, since he selects a percentage from each harvest to use later. He is requesting your support to acquire sacks of organic fertilizer and finish with this year’s sowing. This is his third loan from KIVA and he is grateful for the financial support he receives so that he can continue with his work. Epifanio will invest the S/. 3000 in the purchase of organic fertilizer to nourish his fields.
