A loan of $375 helped to purchase organic manure for his crops.

Luis's story

Luis is 44-years-old, married and has 3 children with whom he lives in his own house. Luis' work consists of growing and selling plantains, yuca, and other regional produce. For a long time, he had economic problems and lacked the money his household required. That is why, some 6 years ago, he decided to begin a new project to help him get ahead. He believed that his friends, neighbors and relatives would like to buy produce from his fields in season. That's why he began his business. Also, he sells soft drinks of different flavors when he is at home.

Luis likes what he does since it allows him time to care for his home. Since he started this business, his economic situation has been doing better. Now, he has 2 sources of income from his home and he wants to keep on growing. That is why he wishes to expand his sales.

This will be his 1st loan with Kiva. To accomplish that, he hopes for your collaboration so that he can continue toward his objectives. In addition, he promises to make his payments punctually. With the solicited 1,000 sols he will buy organic manure for his crops.
