A loan of $725 helped to buy organic soil amendments for his oil palm harvest.

Cacely's story

Cacely, 35, is married and lives in his own house with his wife and his daughters. Cacely earns a living in agriculture on his 10 hectares of land planted with oil palms, which is in production. He has little more than four years of experience in this business. Currently he's harvesting and selling his crop.

He likes his business because it allows him to have an additional income to pay his expenses and to keep busy. Also, seeing that oil palms are more profitable for him, he's planning to devote himself more fully to that activity.

This will be his second Kiva loan. He hopes for your help to continue with his goals.

He'll invest the amount of 2000 nuevos soles [PEN] in buying organic soil amendments and in harvesting his oil palm crop.
