Julio Alberto
Sr. Julio Alberto A. and his wife live in the neighborhood of La Francia. His wife takes care of the household activities. All of their children are grown. Julio has been engaged in agriculture for 25 years and started in this trade with the help and support of his parents. One of the limitations he has had to deal with over the years is the scarce availability of funding available to farmers in Nicaragua. He will greatly benefit from this loan request and will use the funds to purchase supplies and fertilizers for his crops. This will help him speed up the sale of his harvest so that he can recoup his investment.
