A loan of $725 helped to buy organic manure.

Franklin's story

Franklin, 23, is single living in his mother’s house. Franklin works growing bananas, manioc and cocoa beans that are sold to an industrial plant near his fields. He also owns a few heads of cattle that he’s raised for the last ten years. To date, he’s managed to acquire many things ranging from the skills needed to get better results and being considered one of the best farmers in the city. He’s doing very well and his sales are good which is why he’s preparing to expand the business since that’s a goal he set for himself some time ago but has been unable to reach so far due to insufficient capital.

This, then, will be his first Kiva loan and he’s very grateful for the financial support he gets to continue forward which is why he commits to make his payments punctually. He will use the requested amount of 2,000 soles to buy organic manure to nourish his crops.
