Leonel's story

Mr. Leonel lives in the community of Santa Librada. He is a member of the Community Bank and is dedicated mainly to the production and sale of plantains, cassava, and other agricultural products throughout the year. He has been involved in these economic activities for over 20 years.

The profits from his hard work have allowed him to support his children and provide them with a much better life then they had before. Mr. Leonel is an active member of the community bank in Santa Librada. He has requested several loans to invest in his agricultural production, but he is in need of more capital to invest, since he has to sow and harvest the production for the next few months.

The value of the loan requested is for USD 3,000.00. Mr. Leonel has an excellent credit history, and is always demonstrating responsibility and commitment towards the community bank. The harvest is almost reaching its peak season and right now market prices are optimal. In addition, he buys from other producers in the area and connects them to other markets in nearby areas. This Kiva loan would highly contribute to the development of his business and the wellbeing of his family.
