In this work, we study the existence and uniqueness of positive solutions for nonlinear fractional differential equation boundary-value problems. Our analysis relies on a fixed point theorem of a sum operator. Our results guarantee the existence of a unique positive solution, and can be applied for constructing an iterative scheme for obtaining the solution.
