A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Prudencio's story

Prudencio is 45 years old and is a single father with two sons aged 23 and 18. He lives with them in his house which is built from adobe bricks. Prudencio earns a living from cocoa production and through this he has been able to bring up his sons, who sometimes help him to carry out his work.

Currently he wants to carry out weed clearance and maintenance of the land. The harvest time has finished now and it is time to prepare well for the next crop. For this reason he needs to get organic fertilizer and employ staff to help with the cultivation.

Prudencio hopes to buy more land for farming so he can increase his production as he thinks this is his next big challenge. This is his fourth loan with Kiva and he is grateful for the financial support he receives so he can get on in life. He is also committed to paying his instalments punctually. On this occasion he is asking for 2000 soles to buy organic fertilizer.
