A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Marcial's story

Marcial, age 27, is married to Edith, and he has a three year old daughter. They live together in a house made of wood. Marcial has been a farmer for six years. He managed to get his own piece of land where he produces coffee and organic cacao. Upon starting a new cacao season, he has noticed that the weeds need to be cleared from his plants. It is one of the factors that influences getting good quality grains.

Marcial’s goal is to open a store with food products. This way he will be able to provide something better for his daughter.

This is his first loan with Kiva. He is grateful for the support his is receiving in order to get ahead. He pledges to make his payments punctually. He now wishes to have 1,000 soles to buy organic fertilizer. This way he will strengthen his plants.
