A loan of $1,075 helped to buy seeds and fertilizer.


María Mercedes Elvia's story

María Mercedes needs a second Kiva loan. With the first one she was able to increase her assets thus increasing income and payment capacity. This time she needs a loan to improve her crops. Since she was widowed things have not been easy for her. However, with the loans she’s been able to get she’s managed to get ahead. She will use the money from this second loan to pay part of her previous loan and will use what’s left over to buy seeds and fertilizer to improve production.
