Nelson Rodolfo's story

Nelson Rodolfo is 42 years old, is married, and lives with his wife and son, who are his first priority. He is asking for a loan in order to buy seeds, feed, fertilizers, and implements necessary for developing his business planting and selling garden crops. He also plans to improve his green house in order to increase production and offer more products to his customers. He hopes that this investment will offer his family a better quality of life and more economic stability. He would also like to keep growing as a micro-entrepreneur. This is the first loan that he has received from Kiva's field partner FUDECOSUR. He has previously received loans from state banks, but Kiva's partner has offered a loan with a much lower interest rate and better support.
