Leovigildo's story

Leovigildo is 44 years old and lives in Ica with his wife and son. He is eager to get ahead, so for more than 3 years has been engaged in farming, renting a small plot of land in the area where he lives. With the money he earns, he can cover the cost of his home.

One of his major goals is to provide a better future and a quality education for his young son and raise him to be a good person. He is characterized as friendly, responsible, hardworking and respectful, which is why he works tirelessly so that his crops are of the highest quality. He uses materials that are not damaging crops or the environment.

Leovigildo is grateful to Kiva lenders for the support they have given him. He can buy materials for better production and perform pest control for the entire crop, crop irrigation and payment of labor to help him till the soil. Thanks to this, he will have additional income for later to fulfill his greatest dream: "Build my own house of proper material."
