El Jocote Maquengales Group's story

Cristino is 62 years old, and 47 years ago, he began to work in the field of agriculture (planting corn, beans, chia seeds, and coffee). He began when he was little to work with the bean and corn crops on his mother's property. With arduous work, as fruit of his harvests, he built his house and purchased his own land to cultivate. With the previous Kiva loan, he managed to get very good results from his harvests due to the timely application of the agricultural supplies.

He asks for another FUNDENUSE loan with Kiva funds to purchase agricultural supplies to maintain the crop of chia seeds he has established. He has as a goal to improve his house and replace the coffee plants he has. He belongs to the solidarity group El Jocote Maquengales with Denis and Donys who also work in agriculture.
