Oswaldo is a native of the small town of Nueva Providencia. He has already worked in agriculture for five years, farming and raising animals. He has found a big source of help in FAPE and Kiva, which enables him to better himself. He is currently growing tomatillos and beans, so he is requesting this loan so he can purchase seeds and fertilizer for his crops.
