A loan of $500 helped to purchase fertilizers for the 10,500 square meters of farmland where he cultivates corn and beans.

Neftali's story

Neftali is 47 years old, married, and he has a son. Neftali started out in agriculture when he was 12 years old. He learned the business from his father, who, for the sake of teaching his son to work, did not let Neftali go to school. Therefore Neftali has 35 years' experience as an agriculturist, and he loves what he does.

Neftali has requested a loan from Fundacion Campo (Kiva Field Partner) to invest in the 10500 square meters of land where he cultivates corn and beans. The region where Neftali lives is very rural so transportation is very limited. Neftali's challenge is transporting all of the materials to his land. With the help of this loan Neftali has been able to purchase all of the materials he needs all at once, obtaining a better price and saving on the cost of making several trips.

In the future Neftali would like to plant in larger quantities to increase his harvests for sale.
