Por El Futuro De Patamban Group's story

"In our house we think that caring for the environment benefits the entire world, and everyone should join us," says Miguel Bernabé with great enthusiasm. He is a mature man with a jovial heart who likes to share ideas and inspire his family members and friends, in order to unite everyone in the effort to establish and maintain plantations of resin-producing pine in his birth place, Patamban, Michoacán, Mexico.

He understands that new generations will confront many climactic changes and economic challenges. For that reason, it is important to teach them the natural and economic benefits that will result from caring for the land.

Caring for the forests requires much work and materials to achieve a successful plantation. They understand that their work will lead to improving the environment, the quality of life, and economic expansion in the region. For Miguel, it is important that the enthusiasm he has tried to spread with his knowledge of planting pine, should be advanced with training and economic aid to acquire materials for maintaining the pines and contracting the necessary workers.

Unfortunately, they lack sufficient economic resources to obtain all that is necessary. For that reason, it is vitally important that Kiva's generous investors help them achieve their goals.
