A loan of $550 helped buy manure for his croos.


Ruben's story

42-year old Rubén is married to Matilde and has four children. They live in their own house. Rubén is a farmer and grows bananas, yucca, cocoa and other crops. For many years he had many problems in his life as he did not have a regular source of income. For this reason he decided to grow different regional products.

He enjoys his work because it allows him time to maintain his home too. Also since he started his business, all has gone well financially. Now he wishes to grow the business and increase sales.

This is Rubén's first loan with Kiva and he is grateful for this financial assistance. He promises to pay back the money punctually. With the S/. 1500 he is seeking he will buy manure for his crops.
