A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Eulogio's story

Eulogio is 37 years old and he is married to Veronica. They have 4 children and they all live together in their own home.

For the past 21 years, he has been working in agriculture. He mostly grows coffee, bananas, and avocados. He enjoys working the land because of the freedom and because he can work the hours he chooses. However, it is very tiring work, especially during harvest time when he has to hire workers to help him.

Now that he has a wife and children, he does the same work but puts in much more effort because the household expenses are higher and he wants his family to get ahead. He has 2 hectares of land on which he grows coffee. Each year his harvest yields about 15 bags of coffee, but this year he believes he can increase production. Sales are good but Eulogio would like to produce more and so he has plans to continue coffee production because coffee is more profitable than his other crops.

This is his third Kiva loan and he is very thankful for the financial support that he is receiving so that he can get by. He promises to comply with the repayment schedule and to always pay punctually.

Eulogio will invest the 2000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer so that his crops are healthy.
