A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a small plot of agricultural land.

Nidy's story

Nidy is a young woman of 20 years old, who is a single mother of two children.They live in a rented house. From an early age she learned the demanding task of working the land and now she has the large responsibility of supporting her two children. At first she had the solid support of her husband but after their separation she started to work independently. She now works with the help of her parents.

Nidy is knowledgeable about various agricultural activities like the production and maintenance of organic cocoa, which is one of the products her family has traditionally grown. Being a very proactive person she has managed along with her parents to have a very good growing season, using day labor to carry out the various tasks. She has pushed the using of organic fertilizer like guano to obtain a higher quality harvest.

With the passing of the years Nidy has come to think it convenient to purchase a small plot of land and start the production of cocoa of her own. She hopes to improve her economic situation and she comments that she hopes to be able to offer her children a good education so they can be better people. One of her long term goals is to own a considerable amount of agricultural land and with that generate more revenues.

This is Nidy's first loan with Kiva and in spite of her young age she is known in her community as a very responsible person. At this time she is requesting 3000 PEN and together with her savings she will buy a plot of land where she can begin her own organic cocoa plantation.
