Benjamin's story

Benjamin is a hard-working man. He is 28 years old, single, and lives in Huanuco with his family.

For more than 4 years, he has worked in agriculture; his principal product that he plants is cocoa. It is going well for him because he is a tenacious and responsible person and, above all, because he knows a lot about agriculture and his products are of excellent quality.

Benjamin is grateful to the Kiva lenders because, with the support that they have offered, he will be able to purchase supplies such as fertilizers and pesticides to be able to carry out the maintenance of his crop, and in this way to get better quality products and be able to get more income from their sale. So, with much effort and dedication, he will be able, in the future, to reach one of his biggest dreams, to expand his cocoa plantation.
