Jose Armando's story

José is an older gentleman who greatly enjoys farm work. He is very appreciative of the assistance he received from Kiva, which allowed him to care for his crops and achieve good production.

José is currently planting a new crop on his land, so he needs assistance with buying more seeds, farming supplies, composts, and other items in hopes of securing a good harvest. With God’s blessing, he hopes to sell at a good price.
