Ramon De Jesus's story

Ramón de Jesús is 54 years old and has three children. This gentleman is from the area of Chichigalpa, which is in the western region of the country. His town is known for being an area that produces sugar cane and plaintains, and where there is a lot of cattle.

Ramón works selling milk and plantains. His business is located in his small farm and he also distributes his products on the street. He has twelve years of experience. He was already a farmer when the land reform passed. The government gave him and his family some land, and because of his farming experience and his entreprenurial spirit, he dedicated himself along with his family to make it productive and support his household.

Currently Ramón has dreams and goals, which include expanding his farm in order to work more and increase production, which will increase his household income.

Ramón is very grateful to Kiva lenders, because thenks to the help provided he will be able to purchase two producing cows and increase his earnings in the near future.
