A loan helped to buy three quintals of compost, minerals, and soil improvements, and to pay laborers.


Miguel Antonio's story

Miguel is a farmer with 20 years' experience in growing corn and red beans. He has the unconditional support of his family for his source of income, and his desire for self-improvement motivates him every day to do his best in the fields. He learned this work from his ancestors; when he was young, he helped his father doing field work.

Miguel has "knocked on the doors" of MiCrédito and Kiva, trusting in receiving a loan to buy three quintals of compost, minerals, and soil improvements, and to pay his laborers. Miguel's goal for the near future is to acquire a farm and to begin planting vegetables.
