A loan of $625 helped to buy inputs such as fertilizers and to pay laborers who work on his coffee crop.

Byron Salomon's story

Byron wishes to express his gratitude to Kiva investors who offered him the opportunity for his 1st Kiva loan, which he has used to buy inputs such as fertilizers and manure and to pay laborers. The loan advanced his coffee planting and helped cover the costs it generated. He had always wanted to increase his harvests in order to obtain greater earnings.

Byron needs this 2nd financing to invest once again in purchasing inputs like fertilizers and to pay laborers to improve the maintenance of his harvest. As soon as he gathers a good harvest, he will obtain better income and use that to improve his house's infrastructure.
