A loan of $600 helped to buy agricultural supplies to maintain the cornfield and to pay for labor.


Jose Silvio's story

José is a very hardworking and responsible man. He lives with his partner and has 5 children, of whom 2 still live with him.

José works in agriculture. He grows corn and beans and thanks to that he has been able to give what is needed to his family.

Previously José was supported with a Kiva loan for agriculture and he repaid the debt in full. He needs a new loan to buy agricultural supplies to maintain the cornfield and to pay for labor.

What he wants most is to have a home of his own.
