A loan of $1,050 helped to buy manure and insecticides.


Luis Alonso's story

Luis is requesting a loan to buy supplies, because he is going to plant some crops. He will pay for some labor, so that he can have some young men prepare the land where he will plant his crops, and he will also buy manure and insecticides that he will use to protect the crops from weeds and pests. This loan will help Luis carry out his work in the fields in an orderly manner, with the resources that he needs.

With his prior loan, he made a good investment in the cultivation of corn and processing of sugar cane. This has generated work for him over all of this time, so that he could maintain his sales. He is very grateful for the loans that have been provided to him. Through the loans funded by Kiva, he has been able to increase his earnings and have a better quality of life with his family.
