A loan of $1,100 helps to buy soil amendments and minerals with the purpose of applying them to her cassava crops.


Nelvia Modesta's story

Nelvia is a great farmer who, with her family's invaluable help, has focused solely on growing cassava. Every day, from 5 a.m., she heads to her plot to care for her crops. Her love for her two children has given her the necessary strength to continue striving.

Nelvia has received a Kiva loan through MiCredito before which she used to buy agricultural supplies. At this moment, she's happy because she had a good harvest. She's so pleased that she has once again requested a loan from these two organizations to buy soil amendments and minerals with the purpose of applying them to her cassava crops. In the future, Nelvia wishes to grow a variety of basic grains.
