A loan of $1,100 helped to buy supplies and pay for labor.

Mario Del Carmen's story

Mario is a Kiva customer and a farmer by trade. He raises vegetables and feels satisfied with his second loan because it helped him harvest a plot of cabbage and pay for field labor. He made a good profit and the quality of his harvest increased his sales. He used his second loan to buy supplies and pay for labor to harvest a plot of cabbage because the demand for his vegetables has been increasing.

For this reason he is asking for a third loan from Kiva to buy supplies, fertilizers, compost, and pay for labor to be able to plant half a plot of cabbage to sell. He believes that he will obtain good profits from his harvest. His next task will be to expand his farming area.
