A loan of $850 helped to invest in working capital and buy a herd of cattle at a good price.


Mario Genaro's story

Mario Genaro is 52 years old, and is married with three children, aged 22, 18, and 7. He is a native of León, located in the western part of the country.

He makes a living by raising and selling livestock, which he started doing 12 years ago. He makes his sales as a street vendor. He travels about 3 times a week to surrounding regions, offering livestock to new and regular customers.

Mario Genaro has proven to be a responsible, hard-working man. With his previous loans he demonstrated punctuality in his payments.

He needs funding to invest in working capital and buy a herd of cattle that is being offered at a good price.

Mario Genaro appreciates the help that Kiva investors provide to people of scarce resources and poor countries like Nicaragua, to make a decent living.
