Mario Jose's story

Mario is a modest farmer, who lives with his family in the municipality of Masaya. His plan for the future is to improve his family's living conditions, and succeed in building his house.

Mario has been growing citrus fruit for several years. His greatest challenge is not having enough financial resources to adequately maintain his crop, and produce fruit that is of good size, color and taste. His dream is to be able to diversify his crops and strive for better well-being; since if he succeeds, this could change his life.

He appreciates the trust and support that Afodenic offers him, by means of Kiva funding. Without these support programs for small farmers, he wouldn't be able to make progress with his production.
