Rodrigo
Rodrigo is 50 years old and the husband of Graciela, with whom he has two children. The family lives in a their own home, which is made of wood.

Rodrigo has worked on farms since he was very young, when his parents taught him to do agricultural labor. Rodrigo used this experience to make farming the main source of income with which he supports his family. Rodrigo now has a six-hectare plot where he grows organic cacao, coffee, pineapples, and other produce that is in high demand in his area. Several years ago, Rodrigo set aside part of his land to plant lumber trees so that he can sell the lumber in the future and earn income from his reforested land.

This is Rodrigo's first Kiva loan and he is grateful for the financial support he's receiving to grow his business. He is also committed to making his payments on time. Rodrigo would like 4,000 new soles to purchase pineapple plants for his land.

Rodrigo tiene 50 años, está casada con Graciela de 44 años y tiene 2 hijos, con quienes vive en su casa construida a base de madera. Desde muy niño creció en el campo junto a sus padres quienes le inculcaron la labor agrícola y aprendió a usarlo como una principal fuente de ingreso para mantener económicamente a su familia. Actualmente cuenta con 6 hectáreas de parcela con plantaciones de cacao orgánico, café, piña; entre otros productos con amplia demanda en su localidad. Hace varios años destino parte de sus parcelas al sembrío de árboles madereros con el objetivo de obtener a futuro ingresos por la venta de madera de sus áreas reforestadas. Este es su primer préstamo con Kiva y se siente agradecido por el apoyo financiero que recibe para seguir adelante, además se compromete a pagar sus cuotas de manera puntual.
Desea en esta oportunidad contar con 4,000 nuevos soles para la compra de plantas de piña y luego sembrarlas en sus terrenos.
