A loan of $725 helped to buy organic fertilizer and farming tools.

Angel's story

Ángel is 18 years old, single, and lives in an apartment made from high quality material. It is owned by his parents. He is a person who, despite his young age, is highly skilled in farming. When he was young, he learned farm work from his parents.

One year ago, he inherited a small piece of land with the goal of becoming independent in this very beneficial profession. His daily work consists of completing tasks needed for maintaining plantations of organic cocoa, achiote [a seed ground into spice powder or paste], and fruits with the special care he has learned from experience.

One of his primary goals is to have a plot of land and build his own apartment with hopes of having a solid home. This is his first loan with Kiva and he hopes to have the opportunity to have the financial support to continue moving forward. He will invest this loan of 2,000 Nuevos Soles in his land by purchasing organic fertilizer and tools.
