Every month the FTW organization helps people in need through Kiva. We are happy to share their stories with you here.
Mavuno Harvest’s story
This loan is special because:
it increases small holder farmer’s income by drying fruit that otherwise would rot.
Isidro is passionate about the production of quality coffee. Certified high quality coffee provides the farmer with broader marketing opportunities and, even more importantly, with access to higher prices at sale.
Isidro wants to make some repairs to the solar dryer he uses to dry his coffee. To make the repairs he is requesting a loan for the purchase of necessary materials such as: nylon, screens, and nails.
The loan will help Isidro to maintain the quality of his coffee and to sell his crop at the best prices and in wider markets. In this way his family will have more opportunities.
