Leonardo De Jesús's story

Leonardo does not know how to read or write. His life partner works at the household tasks and his children are now adults and live on their own.

Leonardo works selling cattle and at agriculture and has 25 years of experience. He plants corn and beans, the plot of land is 20 minutes from his house by foot and he pays laborers to help him to work.

The financing is needed to purchase cattle to raise. In the past, he was supported by a Kiva loan for agriculture and paid off the debt punctually.

Leonardo has always dreamed of purchasing a truck to transport the cattle to the street market.
