Calixto's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies needed to plant grains. Additionally, it will pay to have the plot he plans to plant in cleared.

Calixto's story

Calixto is a 68 year old widower who attended school until the second grade and lives with his nephew.
Calixto learned from his parents how to grow grains and has done so for 45 years. His parcel of land is a 20 minute walk from his house and he works it from 6 to 11 am. ,
He needs the loan to buy farming supplies with which to grow grains. Additionally, he will pay to have his plot of land cleared.
His dream is to have a dairy cow to provide him with some of his nutrition. He would sell part of the produce to make money and improve his quality of life.
