Productores De Malecon Group's story

Pedro is 57 years of age. He is a man who started working in agriculture when little at 13 years of age, leasing land to grow maize and beans in small scale, and thus purchased a small plot of 1 manzana (7,050 sq. m. approx.) to build his home and grow coffee. With his prior Kiva loan he was able to obtain a very good performance from his harvest due to the timely application of his agricultural supplies.

He is requesting a loan in FUNDENUSE with Kiva for the purchase of agricultural supplies and compost to maintain the crop of 1/2 a manzana of coffee and crop of basic grains. His goal is to extend his property and improve the house where he lives.

He belongs to the solidarity group “Productores de malecón” along with Victorino y Adin, who also work in agriculture.

In this group: Pedro, Victorino, Adin
