but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to reforest the woods with pines to use the resin.

Mesa De Las Flores Group's story

Maria Dolores, a visionary woman and a model for her community, works shoulder to shoulder with her community reforesting the woods with resin pines. At this time, she and her partners do the work with their own resources. However, they know that to be able to continue, they will need more people who, like her, want to recover the forests.

Her dream is to create the desire in the young people to stay in their place of origin and that, in addition, they see their planet through small actions.

The establishment and maintenance of the orchard requires a lot of work and materials, for which an investment is necessary that, due to their economic situation, it is not easy to pay for. For this, in search of achieving her goal, she seeks the courageous support of Kiva to continue with this work supporting nature, the people, and her community of Jeráhuaro, Michoacán, México.

María knows that her success will offer a better future to her entire community, since taking advantage of the resin which the pines will produce will allow them to get financial resources for many years, in addition to creating many sources of jobs.
