A loan of $1,500 helps to purchase soil amendments, soil refresher and minerals.


Leandro De Jesus's story

Working in the fields is something Leandro is passionate about. He is a 39-year old man, very responsible, honest and hard-working. For forty consecutive seasons, he has worked solely at planting three hectares of coffee. In his courageous source of income, he has the full support of his children and spouse.

This courageous farmer had come for financing from MiCrédito and Kiva with the confidence of getting a loan to purchase soil amendments, soil refresher and minerals with the end of applying them to two manzanas of coffee and assuring that no infestation damages his plants.

In the short-term, Leandro plans to make his own coffee business and to be the owner of a very well-known coffee brand at the national level.
