A loan of $375 helped to buy organic manure.


Jorge's story

Jorge is 62 years old. He is hard-working, diligent and wants to progress. He has a wife, Leonarda, and their children are now independent. Jorge and Leonarda live together in their privately owned house. Jorge makes a living growing cocoa, coffee and bananas that he then puts up for sale in the town's market. He currently has a ten-hectare plot of land, which he bought thirty years ago. In this time he has been plying his trade. Jorge receives help from his children during the harvest and he shares his profits with them. Jorge likes his business as, with many years in the trade, he knows the business very well and has passed his experience onto his children. This will be Jorge's first loan with Kiva and he hopes to have your support so that he can continue with his objectives. Jorge promises to make his repayments on time. Jorge will buy organic manure for his next production with this loan of 1000 Nuevo Soles.
