A loan of $1,500 helped to tend to his pineapple crops.

Mario Antonio's story

Mario is currently farming twelve acres of pineapple plants that are almost ready. He needs to tend to them in order to prevent pest infestation and make them stronger. He will use this loan to buy the following products: 40 q. of Completo 12/301/10, 20 q. of urea, 40 l. of Diuron in 20 l. containers, and 10 kg. of Triple. Mario explains that you have to clean and strengthen pineapple plants with fertilizers every season in order for them to produce high quality fruit.

He is grateful for the support he is receiving from Kiva and Afodenic through this loan.
