Dalione's story

Dalione is an 57-years-old Mozambican man. He lives in Angonia, a village within Tete Province, with his wife and their three children.

Dalione is a well-known producer in his village. He produces crops like potatoes, maize, onions, and garlic. Dalione also helps other producers in his village. Since he has a truck, he transports the crops of other producers from Angonia and distributes the crops in various communities. Thanks to this attitude, Dalione has become a trusted person in his village.

Dalione has a long-term vision. He wants to make a difference in his community, so he has decided to start producing vegetables like lettuce, green peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers. However, he faces some challenges related to the regular irrigation of this variety of crops. Thus, Dalione is requesting a Kiva loan to buy a water pump as well as a complete irrigation system. This will produce better quality vegetables that he can sell to the market in order to increase his family's income.
