A loan of $375 helped to buy organic fertilizer.

Eduardo's story

Eduardo is a 40-year old man who is married to Lucia and has five children living at home. He started learning how to work the land when he was a kid, as this was the main income source of his family for many years. Today, with 20 years of experience and working independently, he has continued working with organic cocoa to support his family. He owns land plots where organic cocoa accounts for almost 70% and works with his wife and sometimes workers that receive a fair wage and perform the complicated tasks. He enjoys his job because he does not depend on third parties and because cocoa is one of the products with a higher demand in the area.

With the start of the new cocoa season, he would like to count on a sufficient capital to cover production costs. This is his second loan with Kiva and he is grateful for the financial support received to get ahead. He commits to pay as scheduled and is requesting 1,000 nuevos soles to buy organic fertilizer.
