Mauricio José
View original language description ↓
The business of agriculture and livestock is a job that requires great sacrifice, demanding great efforts which should be carried out in the field, exposed to the sun for many hours and moving animals over long distances. Aware of this situation, Mr. Mauritius is devoted to the agricultural business in the district of Somotillo, where he originates from.

He has a humble family composed of his wife and four small children, for whom he provides food and support for their studies. The reason for him requesting a loan is to invest in his agriculture and livestock business through crops and purchase of livestock such as oxen for their respective development. Currently he is a loyal client, having paid off all of the loans on time and in accordance with the provisions of the institution.

Translated from Spanish by Helen Smith, Kiva volunteer.
