Alcidiades Enrique's story

Alcidiades is 49 years old, and lives in the region of El Caracol together with his 2 children. The oldest is 21 and the younger is 18, and they support him by working on the farm. He is seeking his fourth loan, hoping to count on the support of Kiva to purchase calves to raise, which he will fatten to sell once they reach a good weight. In this way he will obtain better earnings which permit him to sustain his family. Alcidiades has the necessary experience for farming, as he has worked in agriculture for more than 30 years. He has improved his family's life, and his biggest dream is to achieve expanding his farm to obtain better profits which permit him to give good wealth to his children.
