A loan of $1,250 helped to buy supplies, such as fertilizers, and to pay for labor.


Jesus Alberto's story

Jesús is a Kiva client and dedicates himself to vegetable farming. He is from Estelí, and is very pleased with his third loan because it was of great help to him. He was able to invest it during planting season, obtaining good crop yields and quality, thus increasing his sales and making a greater profit. He used his third loan to buy supplies and to pay for labor to cultivate tomatoes, since the demand for his vegetables has been growing. It is for this reason that he is asking for a loan from Kiva, to buy supplies, such as fertilizers, and to pay for labor to sow half an acre of cabbage and an acre of corn to sell, since he believes that he would be able to obtain good yields on these vegetables and could sell them at a good price. The next step would be to increase the area that he uses to sow his vegetables.
