A loan of $875 helped buy more cattle and pigs.

Gilberto's story

Gilberto S. C. is 39 years old and is married with 2 children, who are his highest priority. He wants to buy more pigs and livestock. His land has been his livelihood for many years and he wants it to develop further. This is the second loan he has received from FUDECOSUR. He has also been part of the La Luchita committee, a farming communal bank, for 5 years. He is the treasurer of the committee and of his church. He likes participating in committees because he has a lot of respect for community. He has not had any problems with his land over the past five years, and for that reason, he believes that there is little risk that his land will not develop further. His wish is to provide his children with the education necessary to prepare them for life. This is FUDECOSUR's first loan on Kiva.
