A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Yhonny's story

Yhonny is 29 years old, he is married to Edith, and they have 4 children. The family lives together in their own home. Yhonny has worked in agriculture since he was 15 years old. He grows coffee, cocoa, and bananas. He has 3 hectares of land that the community gave to him and where he works hard.

Yhonny says, "I have the advantage of working close to home and I can bring my products to the city very quickly." He works with Judith, but because the work is arduous, he also has to hire extra help and this is how he takes such good care of his crops.

He is proud to have organic crops and it's a plus that his customers find value in organic food because organic brings him a higher income. His crops are high quality and without any chemicals.

This is his third loan with Kiva and he is thankful for the financial support that he is receiving so that he can get by. He promises to comply with the repayment schedule and make payments punctually. Yhonny will invest 1000 soles in the purchase of organic fertilizer to make his crops healthy.
