Juan Manuel's story

Juan is a man with a strong countenance and an honest character. At 58 years old he starts each day with a good deal of energy, to tend to his banana plants. He loves life in the country. His two children are his biggest support.

He previously worked with a loan from MiCrédito, which allowed him to bring electricity to his farm. That not only improved his working conditions, but also his family life. He is very grateful for that. After having had such a great experience with the loan, he fully trusts both organizations. So much so that in this season he has decided to return to apply for a loan, this time with MiCrédito and Kiva. He plans to use the loan to buy pesticides, fertilizer, herbicides and other products, for use in caring for his banana trees. In the future he would like to acquire a larger amount of land for growing.
