We help a farmer in El Salvador buy some good shit

Literally - shit. Manure in fact.

And in doing so we're helping a bloke named Mario better his family's situation. Miss5 liked his purple shirt but I was particularly taken with his hat.

Here's what KIVA has to say about Mario:

"Mario’s asking for a new loan because the new corn planting season is starting. He’ll buy manure and herbicide that’s needed to farm basic grains. The loan added to state funds will allow him to make a good investment that will help him prevent infestations or any other kind of damage in his crops so that production will be strengthened and crop yields will increase.

The previous loan increased corn production to be sold and he earned better income that led to home improvements. [PADECOMSM believes] that his economic situation is improving through his work in agriculture and his Kiva loan."

KIVA often offers free trials if anyone is interested in seeing if this wonderful institution is for them. We love it :)

About Me

My photo

Bruce Devereaux is one of the nicest people he knows. When not at work he enjoys reading, writing, hiding from his children and not changing nappies.


His career, and if we used the term any more loosely an e might fall out, has included a gardener, a personal lender, a console operator, a stop/go man (not as big a bludge as you might think but great if you’re into sunburn, abuse and varicose veins), a cleaner of banks and pubs and, for a very brief period, a door to door salesman (until the last door he knocked on was answered by a very scary woman with tremendously hairy legs).


Bruce Devereaux currently works as a forty-five-year-old award winning customer service officer (glass statuette available upon request) for the Bank of Queensland and as a very casual employee for Corrective Services. He likes to believe he excels at both but then he has always been prone to exaggeration.


His favourite colour is green, with a picture of Dame Nellie Melba on one side and General Sir John Monash on the other. His favourite flower is self-raising.

 If you see him around town, call his wife immediately - he's probably snuck out and left her alone with all the kids.
