A loan of $750 helped to buy fertilizer and supplies.

Maria De La Cocepcion's story

María lives in the town of Ticuantepe along with her family. Her plan for the future is to be able to diversify her crops and to build her house using cinder blocks as the house she has now is made of plastic with cardboard and pieces of zinc and is very old. She is a very hardworking woman and has spent her whole life growing pineapples. She is currently facing a problem growing her pineapples as she doesn't have the fertilizers and supplies necessary to give them adequate care and end up with a high quality product. She wants the loan to buy fertilizers and supplies. She is grateful for the trust put in her by Afodenic through Kiva because, without these projects to support rural people, they can't carry on with their farms.
