A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Jaimer's story

Jaimer, 42, is married to Ernestina and he has 2 daughters. He lives with his family in his house, which is made of wood. Jaimer is a farmer who cultivates cocoa on his farmlands. This activity is his main source of income. During the last harvest season various pests affected his cocoa crops, and this prevented him from getting very good earnings. He thinks that the best way to deal with this pest, in most cases, is to replace the plants and constantly monitor the crops. To do this, it will be necessary for him to hire workers from the area and also buy organic fertilizers, since this will allow him to keep his crops in optimal condition.

One of Jaimer's main goals is to buy a vehicle to transport his products. This is his 4th loan with Kiva, and he is grateful for the financial support that he is receiving so that he can continue forward. Also, he promises to make his payments on time. At this time, he wants to borrow 2,000 Peruvian soles to buy organic fertilizer for his crops.
