Isidoro's story

Isidoro age 59, is a certified organic farmer from the beautiful village of San Jose, Toledo District, southern Belize. He and his wife Modesta, raised seven children, all living out and employed; some by the Belize Defense Force and some are teachers.

Isidoro is excited about working on the farm as he sees income from his cacao sales, he enjoys harvesting and selling his production. The income from his sales encourages him to expand and properly clean his farm. The previous loan has shown lots of farm management improvement and has recently pruned his cacao trees and is expecting a high yield this coming season. Isidoro also cultivates other cash crops such as corn, pepitos, beans, ground food etc…

Isidoro is requesting another loan to assist him in hiring persons to continue to clean his six acres of mature cacao trees.

Isidoro’s future goal is to expand his cacao farm by one more acre. He then plans to relax and maintain his cacao farm. Isidoro’s hopes are that his children could take over the cacao farm when he retires.
