Mercedes Del Carmen's story

Mercedes is a farmer in the area of Ticuantepe. For two years, the biggest problem has been the pests that the pineapple crop. The plans for the future are to improve soil conservation. When there is burning, it deteriorates to the point that it loses its farming potential. She needs the loan to buy the fertilizers and materials she needs to start the planting. She is grateful for the support that Afodenic has offered through the Kiva Fund, since the interest rates are low as well as the payments.
