A loan helped to buy manure, minerals, fertilizers, foliar nutrients, a cow, and two pigs.


Santos's story

Santos has lived in the countryside since his childhood. He lives with his wife and children. His children have already made their own lives, but they always support their father. Passionate about working the land, Santos is on his feet at five o'clock in the morning, milking his cows and taking some milk to sell in his community. He then goes to the properties where he grows corn and beans.

Thanks to a previous financing from Kiva and MiCredito, he was able to take good care of his harvest and buy a calf and a pig. As a result of his satisfaction and trust in these two organizations, he is requesting a loan to buy manure, minerals, fertilizers, foliar nutrients, a cow, and two pigs. In the near future, he would like to acquire new properties and increase the size of his herd of cattle.
