Marcelino's story

Marcelino is 48 years old. He has four children for whom he provides. He works hard to improve his quality of life. He has worked growing and selling cacao, plantain, yucca and ginger for 23 years. His goal is to continue producing quality regional products.
He is taking this opportunity to request a loan from Kiva to maintain his cacao plants and install and improve his products, with the objective of providing a good product to his customers so that they will remain satisfied.
For extra work he works as a labourer on other parcels of land where he is hired which allows him to save up to improve his agricultural land and improve his income.
Three years ago he became single when he separated from his partner. He is a responsible, honest and very hardworking person.
