A loan of $375 helped to hire local labourers.

Aurelio's story

Aurelio, age 49, is single and has five children with whom he lives in his wooden house. Aurelio is a farmer and has cultivated coffee for eight years on his own land. He does this work with his two eldest children, though he sometimes hires local labourers to help him remove weeds. His main challenge comes when it is time to take the recently-harvested coffee out for drying. He says that he is very tired, and that on more than one occasion he has suffered falls. However, he thinks that his hard work is worth the effort because he is able to bring in an income for his household. This is his third loan on Kiva and he is grateful for the financial support that he receives to keep moving forward. He would like 1,000 soles to hire local labourers and move forward with weeding.
