He has very good personal and work references from the people in the area. The inhabitants of this place work primarily in agriculture, trade, and raising animals.

In addition, he works raising and selling small animals (chickens, guinea pigs, pigs). He also works growing food products. The current loan will be to invest in the maintenance of his 2 hectares of agricultural land, so to generate more income for his well-being and that of his family and assuring the 2016 season.

More about this loan

This product was created to assist Edpyme Alternativa to expand their reach into rural areas of Northern Peru in order to attend more underserved populations. Kiva funding allows the institution to access the Northern areas of the Piura, Lambayeque, and Cajamarca regions, which are generally too costly to serve and therefore less attended by financial institutions.  

A loan of $775 helps to invest in the maintenance of his 2 hectares of agricultural land.
