Francisco Joel's story

Francisco is a man who is passionate about farming. He has lived all his life in the countryside, so his parents taught him to work the land since he was young. Currently he grows pitahaya [dragon fruit] and pineapple. This is how he supports his family.

He is very familiar with Kiva's work through MiCredito, because he was the beneficiary of a loan from the two organizations, for which he is deeply grateful. So grateful that he has applied for a new loan with which he plans to purchase agricultural inputs, fertilizer, and pesticides, in order to get the best from his plants.

His goal for the future is to buy another parcel of land.
