Nora Del Socorro
Nora lives in the community of San Lorenza in the outskirts of Teustepe, Boaco. She is the mother of two children who are in secondary school. She only studied through elementary school due to the impoverished conditions in which she grew up. In addition to being a housewife, she is also a farmer. She started this work five years ago with the help of her children and her husband, who also works in agriculture. She started planting one "manzana" [a unit of land equivalent to 1.7 acres] of rice near her home. This is her first loan. She sells what she produces in the community where buyers come looking for her rice crop. This represents a great effort, of which she is very proud because few women do this work to generate income for their homes. Her main inspiration are her children, for whom she fights to take good care of them. The rainy season is getting close, so she wants to harvest before it begins. She is requesting the Kiva loan to buy supplies and to pay for labor to harvest 1.5 "manzanas" [2.5 acres] of rice. This loan will help her have better production and to harvest her crop and sell it in time so she can try to plant more next season. Her future plans are to buy 2 "manzanas" [3.5 acres] of land since she currently only has 1.5 "manzanas".

Ella solo logro estudiar la primaria debido a la situación de pobreza en la que creció. Además de ser ama de casa es agricultora. Su actividad la inicio hace 5 años con la ayuda de sus hijos y su esposo el cual se dedica a la agricultura también. Comenzó sembrando 1 manzana de arroz cerca de su casa, esta ha sido su primer negocio, lo que saca de la producción lo vende en su comunidad donde llegan los compradores a buscar su cultivo de arroz. Esto representa un esfuerzo muy grande del cual se siente muy orgullosa ya pocas mujeres realizan esta actividad además de generar ingresos para su hogar, para ella su principal inspiración son sus hijos por los cuales ella lucha por salir adelante. La época de lluvia están próximas por eso ella quiere sembrar antes de que comience el invierno por este motivo, está solicitando el crédito Kiva para comprar insumos, pagar mano de obra para sembrar 1.5 manzana de arroz. Este crédito le ayudara a tener mejor producción para sacar a tiempo sus cosechas y venderlas a tiempo y tratar de sembrar más en la próxima temporada. Sus planes futuros son comprar 2 manzanas de tierras ya que actualmente solo posee 1.5manzana.
