Denis Alberto's story

Denis is 39 years old. His wife, Blanca Rosa Espinoza, is a housewife, and she takes care of the children.

Denis is a farmer. He receives income from the sale of milk and from selling livestock. He also has an area where he grows roots and tubers, which guarantees food for the family.

He is requesting his second loan with the AFODENIC institution through Kiva. He will use the loan to plant fodder. His guarantee is the title of a 12 “manzanas” (a manzana is a land measurement unit equivalent to 7000 square meters or 1.728 acres) piece of property located in the Guinea Vieja region. This property is in excellent condition for farming.

With the improvement of growing fodder he is preparing for the summertime so that the livestock can have the feed they need. This way his livestock herd will have good growth and render improved meat and better milk production.

His biggest dream is to increase his inventory and to become a rancher of high stature in order to guarantee better living conditions for his family.
