A loan of $1,175 helped to buy fertilizer and supplies.


Arturo's story

Arturo is a humble farmer in the Ticuantepe zone with his family. His plan for his family is to improve their quality of life. He’s been a farmer for a long time. He’s very happy with the support he gets from Afodenic through Kiva funds because he was able to use the prior loan to plant larger areas of pineapple crops as well as to fertilize a great part of the established plants which led to very satisfactory results. The best of all is that he now has employed three helpers which fills him with happiness because if he hadn’t been benefited by a Kiva loan he would not be able to provide daily bread for his family and his workers. His greatest dream is to be able to finish his house to enjoy greater wellbeing.
