Lucrrecio
Lucrrecio is an organic certified Maya Mountain Cacao farmer who lives in the beautiful village of San Jose, in the Toledo District of Southern Belize. He has been a member of the MMC's Farmers Network for approximately 4 years. As an energetic and industrious young farmer, Lucrrecio desires to perform proper maintenance of his 3 acres of cacao trees.

Lucrrecio was inspired to start this business because the revenue generated from his produce can better his lifestyle and enable him to send his children to school. He, therefore, wants to secure a loan to hire extra workers to help him with the cleaning of his farm.

About Maya Mountain Cacao

Maya Mountain Cacao (MMC) is a for-profit social enterprise that sources premium cacao beans from smallholder farmers in Belize. Founded in 2010, it generates income for marginalized farmers while promoting sustainable agricultural practices in the southern part of the country.

These cacao farmers use Kiva credit to invest in farm maintenance, improvement and expansion. For example, they might hire workers to help with the harvest or buy inputs such as better tools and seedlings.
