A loan of $1,725 helped to purchase high yielding grafted cacao trees.

Arturo's story

Arturo is a new cacao farmer who lives in the beautiful village of San Jose, in the Toledo district of southern Belize.

He sees cacao farming as a beneficial long-term investment for himself and his family. Arturo believes that cacao is a sustainable agricultural crop, that is good for the environment and will help to develop his local community.

He wants to secure a Kiva microloan so that he might expand his cacao farm by purchasing grafted, high-yielding, disease resistant cacao seedlings. He plans to use the generated revenue from his cacao crop to educate his children and improve his family’s lifestyle.
