A loan of $200 helped to purchase high yielding grafted cacao trees.


Lucio's story

Lucio is an organic certified, Maya Mountain Cacao farmer who lives in the beautiful village of San Antonio, in the Toledo district of southern Belize. He sees cacao farming as a beneficial long-term investment for himself and his family. Lucio believes that cacao is a sustainable agricultural crop, that is both good for the environment, and will help develop his local community. He wants to secure a Kiva micro-loan so that he might expand his cacao farm by purchasing grafted, high-yielding, disease resistant cacao seedlings. He plans to use the revenue generated from his cacao crop to educate his children and improve his family’s lifestyle.
