Jose Manuel's story

José Manuel, 32, lives with his partner and son in their own house. He farms corn and beans and does day labor to help pay his household expenses. He has been working in agriculture for many years and has a lot of valuable experience that allows him to always have good harvests. His land is an accessible location for farming and has fertile soil. He sells everything that he produces in and around his community, since he has a large clientele. People know that whatever he sells is of the best quality and affordable. Plus he offers excellent service.

José is a dedicated, responsible and hardworking man. He has many goals for the future and with success and effort, he hopes to achieve them. Last season, he suffered some crop losses, and he wants to recuperate from them, but he does not have sufficient capital. This is why he is asking Kiva partner INTEGRAL for a loan that will allow him to buy seed corn, beans, herbicide, fertilizer, tools, etc. José Manuel has a good payment history and is happy to get this support. He promises meet his payments and at the same time be able to offer his family a fulfilled life.
