A loan of $1,500 helped to buy fertilizer and supplies.

Arturo's story

Arturo is 61 years old and married. He comes from a farming family and is always working on his crops which are his main source of income. As is the case in all businesses, sometimes things go well and sometimes they go badly. However, as he grows a variety of different crops, Arturo always manages to keep moving forward in one way or another. He also has financial support from his children who are now adults and, with the support of Kiva and Afodenic as well, it is easier for him to continue making progress. He is requesting a new loan to maintain four 'manzanas' (just under 7 acres) of pineapple crops which are growing on his farm. He will buy fertilizers, urea, manure and insecticides.
