With this loan from Kiva partner CIDRE, Grover will invest in more cattle so he can produce a greater quantity of milk. With the extra income, Grover hopes that he can help his elderly mom and improve their standard of living. As he is his mother's only son, he had to leave his studies in order to help her tend to the difficult and laborious work on the farm.
In the future, he hopes to finish high school and build a career for himself. Above all, Grover wants to make sure that his elderly mother has enough money to be able to retire. He also hopes to help her expand her home, as a way of repaying her for all the help she has given him over the years.
