Luis Manuel's story

Mr. Luis A., is a small producer in the municipality of San Ignacio. For twenty years he has been devoted to growing pineapples. His biggest problem is the gases of the volcano since it burns the plants. There are plans in the future to expand the crop. During this time, Luis managed to support his family with many needs from the profits from product sales. His family is composed of six children and his wife. Luis needs a loan to buy fertilizers and agricultural inputs necessary to recover the pineapple plants, and also to achieve a good size, color and taste, as these are the features to sell them at a good price. Luis appreciates the confidence that gives Afodenic the capability for lending through Kiva funds.
