Kiva Lending Team: Friends of PAC in Nicaragua
We loan because...
We support the work of PAC in providing opportunities to agricultural entrepreneurs through loans, technical support, and market access. Available credit in Nicaragua’s agricultural sector is extremely limited, as such, we understand the importance of providing loan capital to help sustainably alleviate poverty throughout the country’s rural communities.
PAC (Association for People in Community Action) is a community development organization in Nicaragua. They focus on rural productive value chain integration by offering their borrowers three primary services: loans, technical assistance, and access to markets. Loans give clients the ability to maintain farmland and expand production. Technical assistance helps farmers with business strategy and empowers them with the knowledge necessary to improve crop yields. Market access services link producers to buyers, which can be facilitated through their assistance with helping farmers obtain various certifications for organic and/or sustainably grown products, such as Fair Trade, 4C, and Starbucks’ C.A.F.E Practices. Through their comprehensive model, PAC empowers borrowers with the knowledge, resources, and connections that lead to sustainable success.
