A loan of $650 helped to buy tomato seeds and manure, as well as pay for labor.

Jairo Antonio's story

Jairo is from the community of El Dorado in Estelí department. He tells us that his experience with his first Kiva loan was most beneficial in terms of his crops. It allowed him to improve the quality of his produce, especially onions.

Not only did it allow him to get quality production, but he also managed to prove to himself that he could succeed and be responsible with his loan. Now he has a good credit record.

Now he wants to plant tomatos. That is why he is requesting a second loan, in order to buy tomato seeds and fertilizer, and to pay for labor.

He hopes to sell his entire production at a good price, pay off his loan, make a name for himself as a producer, and succeed in expanding the area he has under cultivation so that he can get ahead in life.
