Pedro's story

Pedro is 51 years old and lives with Ceferina, his partner and mother of his children. Only the youngest of them still lives with them. They live in their own house, located in an agricultural enclosure, which they built with their effort. Pedro is a responsible and hard-working man. Since he was young he has enjoyed work in the fields, so he has worked in agriculture until now. "I grow potatoes, corn, peas, broad beans, gladiolas and others: we grow everything here" he says proudly. In more than 25 years of work, he has gotten much satisfaction and felt frustrations, but he affirms that all these experiences have help him grow as an entrepreneur. He says that all his produce is profitable, it depends on planting them in certain months when the prices will be good. He now has his own land which he is paying off little by little. Before he worked on rented land.

In his short term plan Pedro wants to plant peas and corn and he is requesting a loan to help him do this. This is his fifth loan with Kiva and he is grateful for the support that allows him to get ahead. He promises to pay his installments on time. Pedro will invest the 3,800 PEN to buy organic fertilizer to nurture his crops.
