A loan of $450 helped to purchase fertilizer and supplies.

Luis Alfonso's story

Luis is a small farmer in Ticuantepe. For 25 years he has been growing pineapples. His greatest challenge are the pests that affect his crops. His plans for the future for his family is to give them a better quality of life. He has four children and his wife works as a storekeeper to help support the household expenses.

Luis needs this loan to begin begin planting and to have a good harvest in both quantity and quality in terms of color and flavor. He is grateful for the support that Afodenic has given him through Kiva funds to help him buy fertilizer and the supplies he needs. Without this support he wouldn't be able to achieve the output he needs.
