Richard Alex's story

Upon setting foot on Richard’s small farm, you notice how well he cares for his home and his most precious animals, his cows. He is appreciative of the Kiva funding through MiCrédito as, thanks to this, he has managed to keep his cattle in good shape. This allowed him to get food for his household and also be a means of income, all by selling animals. Richard is a generous and hardworking man with over six years of work experience in caring for cattle and building roads. He is 39 years old, and together he and his wife take care of the welfare of their two children.

With intentions of continuing to prosper, and keeping his cattle in good health, Richard is requesting a second loan to purchase livestock feed, fodder, molasses, and other items. He hopes that “el niño” doesn’t affect his livestock trade since he hopes to increase capital production so that he can continue to prosper and, in this way, improve his living conditions. One of his plans for the future is to increase his number of cattle and his land at the same time. He will work until he achieves his goals.
