A loan helped to buy manure and different types of herbicides such as Gramoxone and chapia.


Mario Arturo's story

Don Mario lives in the town of San Agustín with his wife and children. He works in farming and cultivating coffee, and these are his main sources of income.

He cultivates good quality coffee and bananas. He gives them a proper care to then sell his products at an excellent price.

He is very responsible in his community, and he is requesting this loan to buy manure and different types of herbicides such as Gramoxone and chapia. This will help him to have a good production.

He is very pleased with the kindness and the great attention he has received from Prisma and Kiva, and he is grateful for the help given. His dream is to have a good production.

This loan is special because:

It has a below-market interest rate and is repaid at harvest, when farmers can more easily repay.
