<a href="www.kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=34503">I MADE WENTEN</a> a farmer, who figures out that fertilizer helps his farm be more productive - so he not only gets fertilizer for his farm, he starts selling it to his neighbors and teaching them how it can improve production. Note: This is the loan that inspired the creation of this team, and it is his picture you see above.
