For the past 10 years, he has been growing French-style green beans (haricot verts) on his land as well as corn, coffee, and other vegetables. His customers buy his products in quantity directly from his farm. This source of income is how Don Timoteo is able pay for his children’s education. He gives thanks to God for being able to obtain a Kiva loan so that he can continue growing his crops. In addition, he appreciates the trust that has been demonstrated to him as a person.
