Joel Antonio's story

Joel is a 26-year-old youth. He's a very optimistic merchant, full of strength and virtue and with great enthusiasm for attaining his goals.

For ten consecutive years, he's worked growing vegetables on his small property. Throughout this time working his land, he's worked alone, only having the inspiration of his small child.

Joel had a loan through MiCrédito and Kiva which enabled him to acquire agricultural inputs and apply them to his crop of Terranova onions. He's very happy with having be able to attain this goal.

At this time, he's returning to MiCrédito and Kiva loans in order to buy compost and mineral fertilizer to apply them to the red-point potato crop in his middle parcel.

In the short-term future, he is thinking about acquiring a spot in the market and offering his own produce.
