A loan of $675 helped to buy fertilizer and farm supplies.

Marlon Mauricio's story

Young Marlon is a humble farmer in the Concepción zone, Masaya. He lives with his wife and children. His plan for the future is to improve living conditions since his great dream is to be able to build a little house out of concrete blocks to provide better wellbeing for his family.

Since a very young age, Marlon’s parents taught him how to farm dragon fruit. Now, that’s his work and source of income. However, he does not have the necessary economic resource to be able to provide the care his crops need since he lacks fertilizer and other needed farm supplies for a successful harvest.

He is grateful for the trust Afodenic has placed in him through Kiva funds because despite his being very low income they still trust him to be able to produce a better crop of dragon fruit.
