A loan helped to maintain a parcel of cassava.


Martha Elena's story

Martha has one child and works growing cassava. She was working with a friend, but went on her own. She now has her own parcels of cassava, corn, and beans. She has the support of her husband. She would like to make her products known in the markets in Managua.

She requests a loan from Kiva and MiCrédito that she will use to maintain a parcel of cassava, and so she will be able to have a quality crop and better income.
