Wigberto's story

Wigberto is 60 years old but he has the spirit of a young 20-year-old. He lives in the city of Pucallpa, which is characterized by its temperate and comfortable climate. It also has beautiful scenery, but above all, its inhabitants are very happy and friendly people.

Wigberto is a hard-working man that, through his hard work in agriculture, has been able to help his family get ahead. He has 4 children that he loves very much and he would give his life in order to make them happy. For a long time Wigberto has worked his parcel of land on which he grows bananas, cocoa and corn. He works 9 hours per day because he truly enjoys his work and he enjoys watching his crops grow. Wigberto believes that he is able to get by because he is very responsible.

Wigberto is very thankful for the loans from Kiva and he sends his thanks to everyone that is helping him receive this opportunity. With the loan he will buy compost, fertilizers, and other items like these. He will use it to improve his crops so that he will have a bountiful harvest.

He continues working hard to make his biggest dream come true - to provide a profession for his children and to have a large company.
