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

A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies, carrots, peppers, bananas, tomatoes, yucca and squash.

Nieves's story

Nieves is a man in his senior years; however, that does not prevent him from setting goals and achieving them. For many years he has been selling perishable household products in the market since five in the morning. Also, to obtain a little more income, he has been planting corn.

This great merchant wants to improve himself and diversify his merchandise, so with great confidence he has resorted to financing from KIVA and MiCrèdito to buy agricultural inputs, carrots, peppers, bananas, tomatoes, yucca and squash.

In the next few years he wants to be the biggest producer in his town.
