A loan of $1,050 helps to buy farming inputs and to pay young men to plant his beans and corn.


Juan's story

Juan, 53 years of age, has a son. He has been growing beans, and also has a general store, for more than 35 years.

He obtained a loan, which he used to purchase merchandise for his general store and to be able to plant his corn and beans. Thus, he was able to work better in order to have better production and have more profit, and he is very grateful to Kiva.

He requests a loan from Kiva together with MiCredito, so as to invest it in buying farming inputs and to pay young men to plant his beans and corn. Once the loan is finalized, he thinks to continue investing and thus to make improvements to his home.
