Franklin
Franklin, 60, is a widower and lives with his son, daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren.

Franklin makes a living selling fruits and vegetables which he harvests from his farming land. For this reason, Franklin goes very early to his shop to sell his products since he often sells them at his stall. He also leaves to delivers orders to a few customers.

At the beginning, things were complicated because his first avocado harvest failed and he lost all of his money. But thanks to his hard work and strength he succeeded in getting ahead. After the death of his wife, he now runs the stall that she had in the market.

Many years in the business yielded fruits, and thanks to his savings he was able to improve the infrastructure of his home and his quality of life.

Currently, he is waiting for the sown fields to give him a good harvest so he can earn more money and improve his business.

Because this is the first loan with Kiva, he is happy and grateful for the economic support that he receives since they will help to grow and utilize his places of business. Franklin will invest the money requested to buy fruit, vegetables, saplings, and other products.
