A loan helped to purchase soil amendments and fungicides for the maintenance of his tomato and bean crops.


Mario Oswaldo's story

Mario is 31 years old, and lives with his siblings and parents in the parish of Cahuasqui. Mario is an enterprising man since, from a very young age, he has worked his own crops and at this time he has a tomato crop and a pole bean crop.

Mario decided to increase his crops, so he needs the help of a loan, which will serve him to purchase soil amendments and fungicides for the crops he currently has. In the rainy season, they need greater care to resist the rainy weather. Mario is very grateful to Kiva for the offered help.
