A loan of $725 helped to buy organic manure and plants.


Esteban's story

Esteban, 48, is married to Susana and has 3 children aged 24, 23 and 8 who live with him in his own home.

Esteban is a man who is not afraid of the big challenges, this is how he sees the great necessity of the money that they pay every month. He decided to increase his income in a way that would not interfere with his job at a private business in the city where he works as a cleaner.

One day he decided to grow alternative products on his land, including cocoa, coffee, banana, etc. He started this business 4 years ago with the help of his eldest sons. It is going well as he already has good orders and he never fails anyone in the market, he feels content as at the end of the month he sees good income in his home and he can give a better quality of life to his family.

He hopes that it will continue going well, as his orders are already increasing daily and he has to start expanding his business. This is his first loan with Kiva, he is very happy to know that he has financial support, as it makes him feel safe to take his business forward. On the other hand, he promises to be punctual with his payments. With the amount of 2000 PEN he will buy organic manure and plants for his land.
