A loan of $1,000 helped to plant rice and prepare the land.


Modesto's story

Modesto is 49 years old and makes a living farming potatoes and corn on his parcel of land in the community of Porvenir. This is his third loan with Kiva partner Emprender, and Modesto plans to use it to plant rice and prepare his land. His reason for requesting the loan is to have resources for the planting and for subsistence. Modesto faces challenges with his business, such as inclement weather that often times ruins crops, and he plans to use his profits to improve his quality of life. He is a responsible and hardworking person who feels grateful for the support Emprender is providing, since this is his only source of income.
