but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy organic fertilizer for Mario's coconut farm so that the palms will bear more fruit.


Mario's story

Mario is married with three children and lives in Sapang Dalaga, Misamis Occidental. He and his wife work hard on their own farm for the sake of their children, especially to see that they receive a good education.

Mario took out and successfully repaid a previous loan. He has now applied for a 20,000 PHP loan through Kiva's field partner GDMPC to buy organic fertilizer for his coconut farm so that the palms will bear more fruit. During harvest time Mario delivers his copra, or dried coconut, to his local market where he makes a decent profit. His future plans include seeing his children finish their schooling and improve the family’s living situation.
