A loan of $1,275 helped to invest in the roof under which the threshing machine and the husker are located.


Jose Francisco's story

Jose Francisco is married and his children are no longer minors. To earn a living, he provides corn husking and rice threshing services. He has run this business for nine years, and it is located at his home. He inherited this business from his father who previously owned it. When Jose Francisco reached an age of majority, his father handed it over to him so that it would keep going. He currently uses the rice threshing machine, as it generates more business in the area where he lives.
The aim of the loan is to invest in the roof under which the threshing machine and the husker are located. So, the Kiva program would thus help him to improve the conditions under which he provides these services.
