Jose Rodolfo
Jose V. lives in El Coyolito region, in La Concordia, in Esteli. He is married but does not have any children. In spite of the fact that his economic means were not good, he made a very special effort and managed to reach his second year of high school. José started out in farming by helping his dad, Rodolfo Valvidia, when he was very young. His dad used to grow cabbages and onions. José learned a lot in spite of the fact that he also had to study.

José started working independently at the age of 18, sowing just over 3 acres of cabbages together with a partner. Back then he made some losses in his harvests but he at least managed to recoup what he had invested. He didn't give up, however, but planted cabbages again. This time he managed to make $1,000 US profit though, of course, he had to split the money between himself and his business partner.

José then decided to work with one of his brothers and they rented a plot of land from their grandmother so that they could work with the family. José also raises livestock which he has been buying with the profits that he has made from his cabbage and tomato crops.

José has requested this loan to maintain nearly 3 acres of tomato crops. He hopes to make good profits from this harvest. In the future, he plans to buy his own plot of land and to buy more livestock.

Inicion desde muy pequeno, ayudando a su Papa, Don Rodolfo V., quien sembraba Repollo, Cebolla, el era ayudante de su papa en estas actividades y aprendio mucho, a pesar de que tambien debia estudiar.
Empezo a independizarse a los 18 anos, sembrando en sociedad 1 manzana de Repollo, y en esa epoca hubo perdida en las cosechas, pero el al menos logro sacar lo que habia invertido; pero esto no lo hizo darse por vencido, entonces volvio a sembrar repollo, y esta vez si logro obtener ganancias de U$ 1,000.00; claro que lo tenia que dividir entre su socio y el.
Luego decidio trabajar con un hermano y alquilaban un terreno a su abuelita, para trabajar con la familia; tambien se dedica al engorde Ganado, que ha ido comprando con las ganancias que le ha generado la siembra de Repollo y de Tomate.
Actualmente realizo el credito para el mantenimiento de 1 manzana de Tomates; espera obtener buenas ganancias de esta cosecha.
