Los Cachorros Del Encino Group's story

Ramón is 30 years old. He is the father of one child, and he is a farmer who has grown basic grains for 18 years. He has more than two manzanas of cropland where he farms, with an average yield of 20 quintals of beans and 20 quintals of corn per manzana. With the previous loan, he was able to buy agricultural supplies that his crops needed. With the timely application, he was able to obtain very good results.

He is asking for a loan again in Fundenuse with Kiva funds to buy supplies to grow irrigated beans. This way, he is guaranteed to be able to feed his family and sell the excess to pay for other expenses and pay off the loan. He belongs to the “Los Cachorros del Encino” support group with Efrain and Noe, who also work in agriculture.

In this group: Ramón, Noe , Efrain
