Here at Mission Belt we’re a pretty happy bunch and we like to see others happy. It’s great to see people smile when they first rock one of our Mission Belts and it really brings it full circle when we see that smile transfer to someone who has been aided by the micro-loans we help finance. Thats why when we came across Nadira’s smiling face, we knew we had to tell her story. Nadira, a 38 year old mother of 3, was trained to be a school teacher but when faced with the decision of how to better provide for her family and increase her income, she turned to farming. After having received her loan, she invested it in fertilizer for her potatoes in hopes of generating enough profit to purchase more cattle for her farm. She is now well on her way to repaying the interest-free loan back and making that money available to others seeking economic independence. Nadira is an awesome entrepreneur with a great dream and we were so happy to be a small part of her success. It’s amazing what hard work, a dream, and a little micro-loan can accomplish.
You can follow up on Nadira’s story as well as check other people that have been funded by the Mission Belt family on the Kiva website.
