Carlos's story

Carlos works the land that he inherited from his parents, and with great effort, he has been expanding it little by little. This farmer specializes in growing watermelon, corn, beans, and sesame, so much so that he has 20 years' experience. In his arduous work, he has the unconditional support of his children.

Carlos has had a previous experience with a loan from Kiva and MiCrèdito; with it, hebought seeds of corn, beans, and sesame. Now he wants to continue farming, but he needs financial support. This is why he again has turned to the loans from these two organizations, to buy compost, minerals, watermelon seeds, bean seeds, corn seeds, soil amendments, and leaf fertilizers. In the near future, he is planning to add new land and diversify his crops.
