Manuel De Jesus's story

Manuel is 53 years old, married, and lives in Chichigalpa, in western Nicaragua, known for its sugar cane and sugar production, and as being one of the hottest places in Nicaragua.

Manuel was affected by chronic kidney problems seven years ago and was a field worker at the time.

He is asking for this loan so that he can plant beans on some farmland 25 km from his home. He must leave his home at 5:00 am so that he can arrive on location by 7:00 am to begin work. He continues to work in the fields because he has to support his family of five (wife, daughter, and three grandchildren).

He is very grateful to CEPRODEL and Kiva because thanks to these loans he can tend his crops and have a good harvest.
