A loan of $375 helped to purchase organic fertilizer.

Angel's story

Angel, 20, is single and lives with his siblings in his parent's house. Angel is a farmer on his parent's plots of land. He has been helping them since he was very young since agricultural work is collective work.

Angel provides good upkeep on the lands to obtain a good production. Angel's siblings support him so he no longer needs to hire workers; using that money for the regular performance of his work. After a long season and with the arrival of the harvest they must collect ripe cocoa pods, open them and extract the cocoa beans that will be dried in the sun and later taken to sale centers located in his area; he recuperates the money that he invested with respective gains.

This is his second loan with Kiva and he is thankful for the financial support he is receiving to continue ahead. In addition, he promises to pay his monthly payments on time. At this time he wants to request 2,000 Peruvian Soles to purchase organic fertilizer and to prepare the lands for the new crops.
