Quiricio's story

Quiricio is a new cacao farmer, who lives in the beautiful village of Pueblo Viejo, in the Toledo district of southern Belize. He is eager to join the cacao industry because he sees cacao farming as a beneficial long-term investment. Other cacao farmers have encouraged him to plant cacao tree for long term financial benefit for himself and his family. He believes that cacao is a sustainable agricultural crop that is both good for the environment and will help develop his local community. Quiricio is applying for Kiva microloan 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.
