Helares Group's story

Jenry is 29 years old. He has a 5 year old daughter. He is seen as an early riser, responsible and very demanding with his challenges. His big dream is to construct his house to improve his family's quality of living.

Ten years ago, Jenry started to produce cacao and coffee. Besides this along with his wife he works as day labor which means working on other's land cleaning, harvesting, planting and weeding amongst other farm work.

He belongs to the "Helares" group where he is the treasurer. It is made up of nine members and led by his friend and fellow member Sixto, This is their 6th loan cycle and it is considered a strong committed group with great desire to continue to grow. This is their second loan with KIva and they consider their first loan was very good and hope this loan cycle is the same and they get the same support.

At this time Jenry is requesting a loan to grow cocoa and coffee. clean and harvest. To do this he needs to buy better manure, improve his infrastructure and avoid the risk of disease.
