A loan of $1,450 helped to buy organic fertilizer and to hire local workers.

Pedro's story

Pedro is 46 years old. He is married to Antonia with whom he lives in his home built out of adobe. Pedro makes a living in agriculture and he has managed to convert his farm lands into a good source of income for him and his wife. Currently he is giving priority to the production of cacao due to the great demand that exists in his town and the good price that buyers offer for these products. The harvest season having already ended, it is very necessary to not let time pass and to start with the purchase of organic fertilizer and seedlings, among other things, and also to hire local workers for the next harvest.

This is his second loan with Kiva and he feels grateful for the financial support that he receives in order to move forward. He is also committed to paying his installments in a punctual manner. On this occasion he wants to have 4,000 nuevos soles (PEN) to buy organic fertilizer and to hire local workers.
