Calisto's story

Calisto is an 64-year-old Mozambican man. He is single and lives in Namaacha District in Maputo Province.

Calisto has a background in agriculture and a long time experience in crops production. He started commercially producing in 2009. He produces multiple veggies such as cabbage, carrots, green pepper, tomato and lettuce.

Considering the fact that the market continually demands fresh veggies, Calisto wants to invest more in this type of crops. However, he needs proper equipment in order to ensure a better quality of veggies to distribute in the local market.

For this reason, Calisto is requesting a Kiva loan to buy a tropicalized greenhouse to help him produce high quality veggies and ensure a continuous income.
