Yoel's story

Yoel is 27 years old and he lives with his partner, Zaida. They have one son from their relationship, named Jharlim and he is 3 years old. They live together in a house which they own in the community of Villa Quintiarina, an annex to the district of Quimbiri. When Yoel was still an adolescent he worked his parents' land. But 5 years ago he managed to purchase a parcel of land measuring 6 hectares where he cultivates cocoa and coffee. The key to his success has been his creativity and his eagerness to work. His plants benefit from being cared for in a technical manner. He received training from the Agricultural Engineers periodically. The product in greatest demand is the cocoa beans, given the quality of the product that he offers and the income earned from these grains is good. He usually works alone but during the harvest he hires farm hands to help him advance in the harvest quickly. His plan for the future is to keep expanding his agricultural production to be able to satisfy his clients' demands. He will be able to improve the quality of his life. This is his first loan with MFP (Kiva Field Partner) and he knows that his support will be a great help in the development of his work. With the loan that he requests he will hire farmhands to help him with the harvest and to help him combat against plagues.
