Kiva – Rice farming

I have contributed to a loan to assist a man in Peru in purchasing fertilizer for his rice crops.

Its interesting how the type of photo taken can influence which loans I contribute too. A lot of the loans on the Kiva website are of the borrower in an office or on the street. To me they almost look like criminal mug shots. I prefer the photos of borrowing either in the fields that they work, with the animals they raise, or doing the tasks that they do for a living.
