A loan of $725 helped to buy organic manure for the next planting cycle.


Ruben's story

Rubén, 34, is single with no children. He lives in a wood house he bought five years ago with the fruit of his effort.

Rubén works growing organic cacao and has been doing this for about 10 years. To provide adequate work in the fields he gets help from local laborers who do excellent work on is farmland. In future, he’d like to become a buyer of agricultural products because he’ll be able to earn higher profits and insure a better future for himself.

This is his second Kiva loan and he’s grateful for the financial support he gets to continue with his plans for the future. He also commits to make his payments punctually. He will use the 2,000 new soles to buy organic manure for his next planting cycle.
