The grower Mateo lives in Colonia el Serrano. Since he was young he has developed his activities on his farm, making a living from the production of roots and tubers. He also receives income from the sale of milk products. For about seven years he has worked with loans that the institution Afodenic has financed to him, from which he has benefited in order to improve the quality of life for him and his family.

He is an honest and hardworking person with the spirit to overcome so this time he is applying for a loan with Kiva for the establishment of about 1.72 acres of yucca. He will use the supplies for the preparation of the soil.

His hope is to obtain an excellent production so that at harvest time he will be able to sell it at the best price and obtain a greater profit.
