A loan of $1,250 helped to plant corn.


Ricardo's story

Ricardo is originally from the city of León. He is 60 years old, married, and has two adult children who support him with his mills business.

His previous loan was used for the maintenance of the mills. The loan that is being requested is for planting corn and maintaining his mills.

This investment will allow him to get better crop, and thus, sell a larger quantity of production. It is based on the grain you get from typical Nicaraguan drinks, such as pozol and pinolillo [cornmeal and cacao drinks] and also tortillas that are very popular within the population. His goal is to distribute his crop at different sales points in the city, as well as his mills. He is very appreciative of Kiva and MiCredito for the help they have given, since he has been able to succeed and grow economically.
