Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans we rely on donations from supporters like you to continue this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $25 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Thanks for your continuing partnership in making the world a fairer place.

In service, Premal Shah, President,

Dionicio is 30 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has one child. He lives in a rural neighborhood of Taulabe, Comayagua.

From a very young age, Dionicio has engaged in coffee-growing activities with his family. He is a hardworking individual who currently has one plot of land for growing coffee. The area where he lives is suitable for this crop. The coffee is produced in parchment, washed, and then sold at the local market. On many occasions, buyers will come to his house. The high demand of this product is what motivates him to grow this crop, which enables him to obtain good earnings.

Dionicio is requesting his second loan in the amount of 10,000 HNL so that he can invest in the purchase of fertilizer for maintaining his coffee farm and improving his production. His plan is to create more seedbeds so that he can continue planting and increasing his production level, which will result in more sales.
