A loan of $375 helped to buy livestock.

Epifanio's story

Epifanio is a 28-year old responsible man. He lives with his wife, Nery, and their young daughter in a house that he has been renting for 2 years. Epifanio works buying and selling grain in the city of Huancayo, where he has good buyers. He says he initially never though about this business as his parents are farmers and taught them their profession. He negotiates himself and is being successful selling his parents' products and those of other farmers. He also buys and sells small animals and negotiates those in his locality every week. He expects to increase his livestock and to improve his business, where he receives good income.

This is his first loan with Kiva and he expects it will help him to reach his goals. He also commits to repay as scheduled. Epifanio will invest 1,000 soles in the purchase of livestock in bulk, with an aim to improve his earnings.
