Elman Santiago's story
Elman is originally from the municipality of Mindiri in Masaya. He lives together with his wife and children. His plans for the future are to improve their living conditions. Elman has been cultivating yucca for many years. The greatest challenge is the theft of the product. He will invest the loan in fertilizer, wood, a plow, etc. He is thankful to Afodenic (Kiva Field Partner), operating through Kiva, for the support provided, as it provides a great benefit for many farmers, since being very protective of crops will make for good sales.
