Luis is very grateful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help they have given him, he will be able to buy seeds, compost, and fertilizers. He will also cover the expenses for watering and clearing the weeds from the land. This way he will be able to plant his crop. He will be able to continue struggling each day in order to be able to make his biggest dream come true. He dream is to have a farm.
