P'ukuri Jatsinticha Group's story

Calletano, Florencia, and Sara live in the indigenous community of Cheran Atzicurin in Michoacán, Mexico. They long for their children to take advantage of the fruits that reforestation will provide them in the future. They are working to replant their forest land since it will bring back many of the benefits that came from the trees that were cut down many years ago. In addition, replanting the pine forest means that they and their families will be able to sell resin as a source of income that will last them for more than 70 years.

Calletano remembers that his father used to work in the collection of resin and it's because of this that he knows the benefits that he and the community will enjoy.

The challenges they face are many because establishing and caring for a forest requires a lot of materials and work. Unfortunately, they do not have sufficient incomes to carry out the work and buy everything that is needed to proceed with planting. They currently work at their own businesses involving carpentry, embroideries, and taking care of livestock. However, they maintain their love of the forest in hopes that they will somehow achieve their dream. Kiva provides them this opportunity to see all of their efforts come together.

They are excited and would like to thank everyone for their support. Their success represents a change in lifestyle for their families, as well as a contribution to the improvement of the ecosystem of this region.
