A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase compost and herbicides, and to pay for labor.

Manuel Aparicio's story

Manuel needs money in order to grow basic grains. That's why he requests a new loan so that he can purchase supplies such as compost and herbicides, as well as pay for the labor. Those are the things he needs in order to do his work.
He believes that with the previous loan, the level of production in his crop went well. This helped him to sell and to afford other household necessities with his profits. By using his Kiva loan he has improved his stance as a family man and also as a farmer. He currently enjoys very good health and maintains the same number of family members.
