Fausto Jose's story

Fausto is 43 years old and lives with his wife Grace Gutierrez, who is a housewife, and his children who help him with the work on his farm in la Tigra, el Jicaro district of the town of El Almendro. He is a producer and livestock farmer. This gentleman makes income by selling products from his farm as he is the owner of his production unit. Through his own hard work he has achieved all that he now has since he is a very hard-working man of good habits. Fausto would like to continue making progress which is why he is requesting his first loan through Kiva to invest in improving his home which will provide his immediate family with better living conditions. Fausto's greatest dream is for his children to be good people and to provide them with better comfort in their home.
