A loan of $200 helped to buy organic manure.

Donal's story

Donal, 56, is a single father of two children he lives with in his mother’s house. Donal works in agriculture especially growing cocoa beans and coffee; he has 15 years’ experience in this line of work. He started with this activity thanks to his father who also worked in agriculture.

The main problem in this activity is the extreme price fluctuations in cocoa beans and coffee during the growing season but thanks to his experience and skills he’s been able to get good crop yields. What he hopes for now is to increase crop production and to change his normal production for a higher quality one.

This is his first Kiva loan so he feels very grateful for the financial support he’s getting to continue forward; he also commits to make his payments punctually. He will use the requested 500 soles to buy organic manure for his crops.
