At Peruvian Naturals we are excited to announce that this month’s earnings pledge to support agriculture in Peru went to a farmer in Arequipa, Raul Gregorio. According to his Kiva profile:
Raul Gregorio’s story
Raul is a hardworking gentleman who is 42 years of age. He lives with his four children in the town of Orcopampa, which is located in Arequipa.
Raul raises cattle. He looks after and feeds his animals with a great amount of attention so that he can sell them at a later time. Raul is requesting a microloan so that he can buy pigs to sell, which will allow him to increase his earnings.
In the future, Raul wants to make improvements to his house so that his children can live comfortably. In addition, he works very hard so that his children can receive a good education and become professionals who have good values.
