A loan helped a member to replant pine forests in order to harvest resin.

Ecologico Para El Futuro Group's story

As a farmer and originally from Jeráhuaro, Michoacán, Manuel expresses his and his family’s interest in recovering their forests through reforestation. They know that, with hard work, they will be able to leave the forests very similar to what they looked like before the illegal logging. For them the forest is not only a producer of oxygen but is a heritage for future generations. That is why it is essential that from now on the damaged areas are cared for and reforested.

With the reforestation, Manuel hopes to have a direct impact on the entire area by generating work and supporting the conservation of the forest and the soil. In addition, he knows that this work will also have a global impact. That is why it is worth the trouble to put in a lot of effort, to work hard, and to strive to obtain the resources needed for planting, caring for, and maintaining the pines. Difficulties always exist, and it is necessary to learn to overcome them.

There are a lot of spaces for planting the pines, but unfortunately there are also financial limitations that they could not overcome alone. For that reason, they are seeking the resources and support through KIVA to achieve implementing this project that they are sure will boost the improvement of their environment and that of their families.
