El Mirador Del Volcan Group's story

Lázaro is a 64-year-old man. He's married, humble, and the father of five children, only one of whom is still in his care. He has worked in agriculture for twenty years, as his father also worked in agriculture, and it's from him that he learned the work.

He has his own lands where he grows corn, and now, for this upcoming season, he wants to plant a manzana of beans.

He's requesting a loan from Fundenuse with Kiva funds for the purchase of chemical inputs and to pay for day labor.

He belongs to the “El Mirador del Volcán” solidarity group, together with Néstor, Alexis, Erick y Santos, who also work in agriculture.

In this group: Lázaro, Alexis, Néstor, Santos, Erick
