A loan of $925 helped to buy organic manure.


Ronald's story

Ronald is 22 years old, single and lives with his family at his parents' house. In spite of his age and the fact that he wants to continue studying, Ronald is working in agriculture. Every morning he goes out with his father to their potato crops, which he carefully looks after as he needs to take full advantage of the land that he rents so that he can grow potatoes. With the profits he has earned, Ronald bought pigs and bulls with which he can earn some more money. Ronald works on his land with the help of his bulls. This is Ronald's third loan with Kiva and he is very grateful for the financial support he receives in order to get ahead. Ronald will invest the 2500 Nuevo Soles in buying organic manure to nourish his sown land.
