A loan of $500 helped to buy manure and fertilizer.


Jose Antonio's story

José is a humble farmer living in the community of El Bálsamo in the outskirts of Boaco. He was benefited with his first Kiva loan which he used to provide better crop care; he sold his harvest at a fair price and is grateful for the support he got when he most needed it.

Today, he’s asking for a loan to buy manure and fertilizer to plant basic grains because he wants to produce a good crop yield that will lead to income to improve his family’s quality of life.
