A loan of $1,075 helped to purchase fertilizers and supplies.


Martha Lourdes's story

Mrs Martha and her husband are residents of the Ticuantepe municipality. He works for a private company to help cover the expenses of the household. They have children. Their future plans are to improve their quality of life, and mainly to build a proper house. Mrs. Martha has been growing dragon fruit for several years. Her main challenge are the pests that attack the fruit. She is very happy with the support that she gets from Afondenic through the Kiva funds. There are many women that make a living in the fields and are able to harvest their crops thanks to the help that they receive through the loans. She needs this loan for the purchase of fertilizers and supplies.
