Franz's story

Franz was born on October 4th, 1984, in the Cordillera province in Santa Cruz. He is married to Leidy, and they have three school age children.

He has been a farmer for ten years. He bought a parcel of land that is 19 hectares. It is located in Porvenir, which is 85 kilometers from the Cordillera province in the Cabezas municipality. He lives and does his farming work there. He grows corn, sorghum, and beans. He also has cattle. He works or plants with a tractor.

He will use the loan to prepare the land for planting. He will hire workers for the labor and rent the tractor.

He is a very hard-working young man. He is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for demonstrating their trust by providing this loan.
