A loan of $650 helped to buy materials to so maintenance on his pitaya [dragon fruit] crop.

Oscar Antonio's story

Oscar lives in the town of San Caralampio with his wife and children. They work the land and grow pitaya [dragon fruit]. At this time, he needs capital to do some maintenance on his crop since due to the weather and pests the pitayas are somewhat small and he is afraid he won't be able to sell them. With this new loan, he will buy necessary materials, such as urea and others. Oscar is very satisfied with this new opportunity that Afodenic is offering through the Kiva Fund. They are offering him this loan because with this help he will be able to get his pitaya ahead and his income will improve. Oscar tells us he is happy with the trust given to small farmers such as he is.
