Leonel's story

Leonel lives in Huanuco. He is single and has two small children to whom he wants to provide a better education and improve their standard of living. It is because of this that he goes out very early to work to be able to support his family.

For more than 20 years, he has made a living from agriculture, cultivating exclusively bananas and cocoa.

Initially, the land was his father’s. With time, when he became aware that Leonel was a very responsible and hard-working person, he turned over part of his land to him so that he would be able to take charge of the production.

Leonel is very thankful to the Kiva lenders, since with their great help, he will purchase supplies to be able to fertilize his land and improve the quality of his products. He will therefore be able to complete his greatest dream: “To have the best banana farm in the region.”
