Benito Vicente's story

Benito is a farmer with more than 20 years of experience growing yuca in the land around the house where he lives. With two children to care for, he wishes to continue growing the best yuca in the region so he can pay for their school fees. At 42 years of age, he is considered a kind, sincere, and hardworking person. He is the pride of his parents for achieving all of the goals he sets.

In order to continue growing his business, he is requesting a loan from Micredito together with Kiva in order to be able to buy a machete, natural and chemical fertilizer, and yuca. In his previous loan he was able to plant watermelon, getting good results.

In the not-so-distant future he hopes to request another loan to buy cattle for his farm.
