A loan of $300 helped to buy organic manure for his crops.


Herder's story

Herder, 26, is single living with his family in his parents’ house. Herder works in agriculture with his father. He works on farmland but also sells his products in the city. As a complementary activity, Herder also works for the city and works as a day laborer seeking to increase income to improve his family’s quality of life. Although some years have been difficult because his land wasn’t very productive, thanks to family support he’s continued forward/. He also has a business buying and selling livestock and hopes to use extra income from his activities to continue growing and moving his entire family forward. This is Herder’s first Kiva loan and he’s grateful for the economic support provided and he promises to be punctual with his payments so that he can request another loan later on. He will use the requested 800 soles to buy organic manure for his crops.
