Cecilio's story

Cecilio is a new 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. He also believes that cacao is a sustainable agricultural crop, which is both good for the environment and will help develop his local community. He wants to secure a Kiva micro-loan so that he can purchase 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.
