Luciano's story

Luciano is 45 years old and is a very kind, joyful man who is the father of four young children. He lives with his wife and children in their own home, and he works as a cacao, yucca and banana farmer. Over the years, Luciano has faced many challenges and setbacks in his farming operation, and 10 years ago he decided to start planting alternative, organic crops such as cacao, coffee, bananas, etc. In addition, he also sells a wide variety of soft drinks from his home to generate additional income.

Luciano enjoys his work, and he likes that it allows him to have some free time to maintain and look after his house. He is grateful that business is going well, and he is also grateful to have two jobs and two sources of income. This is his first Kiva loan, and he is grateful for this opportunity and promises to make all scheduled loan repayments on time. With the support from this loan, Luciano plans to purchase organic manure and fertilizer for tending his crops.
