A loan of $725 helped to buy organic soil amendments.

Fidenciano's story

Fidenciano, 56, is married and lives with his wife in his adobe house.

Fidenciano works in agriculture in a nearby town where he grows a variety of products that are profitable in his area, such as cacao and fruit trees. He has done this job for more than 30 years and has always had his wife's help. He also has hired workers from the area during the harvest and clearing to speed up the work.

Fidenciano usually uses organic soil amendments to fertilize his fields and get a good harvest. His current croplands are the fruit of his work. His main problem is transportation because the roads to reach the city with the sacks are difficult to access.

This is Fidenciano's first Kiva loan and he's grateful for the financial help he's receiving to get ahead. He wants to have 2,000 nuevos soles [PEN] to buy the organic soil amendments to nourish his plants.
