Candida Rosa's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy seed-starting supplies and sunflower, sesame, and poppy seeds for her nursery.

Candida Rosa's story

Cándida is a woman of 62 years of age who is very dedicated to her work. She gets up very early to do what she likes most: to give life to the plants in her nursery, a business that she has already had for 30 years and which she learned from her parents. It is a business to which she gives a lot of determination, since she thinks that the plants fill space in the daily life of those who acquire them, and they are also of great importance because they purify the air. Her children help her in the business.

Cándida is applying to Kiva, along with MiCrédito, for a loan to buy products that will help her to germinate the seeds in her nursery. She will also buy seeds that she doesn't have, such as sunflowers, sesame, and poppy, among others. All this is to improve the variety of her products for her customers.

In the future, she wants to expand her nursery to offer more quality products to her customers.
