A loan of $650 helped to purchase supplies and prepare the land to plant yucca.


José Ismael's story

José is 50 years old and studied up to the 3rd grade. His parents had limited economic resources and were unable to give him an education. He is single but has 4 children who live elsewhere.

José has worked his whole life in agriculture and it is work that his entire family does. In general, he plants yucca, the land is near his house and he goes by foot or bicycle. He pays laborers to make the work faster.

He needs the loan to purchase supplies and prepare the land to plant yucca.

He dreams of continuing to get good earnings from planting yucca and paying off the loan without difficulty.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Wendy Harris


This loan is special because:

It enables farmers to plant basic grains to feed their families.
