Darling De Jesus's story

Darling is a humble farmer from the area of La Ceiba, located in Masaya. He lives with his family. His plans for the future are to improve his humble house, since it is currently built of wood and it has serious problems in the winter. Darling has been cultivating cassava for several years. The biggest difficulty he has had was a very heavy rain storm that washed out a large part of his farm, blocking fencing and other things. But thanks to God, and to the support that Kiva provides him every loan cycle, he was able to establish a parcel of pineapples and with that he was able to pay his loan. Now he needs your support so he can plant cassava again, because at this time he doesn’t have the economic resources to plant his farm. With the loan he will buy cassava cuttings, fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, urea, and other products.
