A loan of $425 helped to buy corozo fruit in bulk.


Manuel Francisco's story

Manuel used his previous Kiva loan to travel to El Carmen de Bolívar and buy a large quantity of avocados which he sold both directly and also to his customers who are fruit distributors. He is very enthusiastic about his Kiva loan and is now requesting a new one so that he can make another investment in another very profitable [native] fruit called 'corozo'. He will soon be traveling to La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, one of Colombia's heavenly locations, to buy it. While he is there, he will enjoy the beauty of the landscape and make his purchase.

Translated from Spanish by Kiva volunteer Linda Oxnard
