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


Antonia Del Carmen's story

Antonia is a small farmer in the Ticuantepe area. For 18 years she has been growing pineapples. The greatest challenge she faces are the pests and diseases that affect her plants because she doesn't have enough fertilizer. Her plans for her family are to improve their quality of life. She has three children, only one of whom is studying at university because of their financial problems. She works hard every day in the hopes of seeing her son graduate.

Antonia is grateful for the support that she receives from Afodenic through Kiva funds because it has been a huge help for her and little by little she has been able to make changes in her life. With this loan she will purchase fertilizer and supplies to plant pineapples.
