Sabas Daniel
Don Sabas P., 45, lives in the community of Laguneta in the municipality of Pueblo Nuevo in the Jinotega department, north of Esteli. He is married, has 4 children, and is a farmer who cultivates vegetables and staple grains.

He started in this business with his uncle. He helped his uncle, and his uncle taught him how to farm. In addition, his uncle had his own land. But 8 years ago, because of financial problems, he traveled to the neighboring country of Costa Rica, seeking a better future for himself and for his family. He lived there for 2 years, and then returned to his native country.

He tried to have 2 businesses at once: one was a small sales stand and another was farming. But he had to close the sales business because it left him without the capital he needed to invest in his farming business.

So later, he worked only in agriculture, and he experienced many problems with drought and other natural conditions that were not very favorable. But gradually he overcame these problems, so much so that now he has his own irrigation equipment.

He requests a loan to plan a 1/2 manzana (a little less than an acre) of tomatoes.

His goal is to be able to manage his resources well so that he can produce vegetables all year long, and so avoid having to emigrate to another country.

Inicio en este negocio, con un tio, el le ayudo y le explico como se sembraba, ademas el tio tenia un terreno. Pero por problemas financieros, viajo al vecino pais de Costa Rica a buscar mejor futuro para el y su familia, hace 8 anos, vivio 2 anos alla y regreso a su patria.
Intento tener dos negocios a la vez, una era una ventecita y el otro era la agricultura, pero tuvo que cerrar la venta porque la descapitalizo por invertir en la agricultura.
Luego se dedico solamente a la agricultura, y paso muchos problemas de sequia y otras condiciones de la naturaleza que no le fueron tan favorables. Pero poco a poco fue superando estos problemas, tanto asi, que ahora cuenta con su propio equipo de riego.
Solicito este credito, para la siembra de 1/2 manzana de Tomate.
Su meta es poder administrar bien sus recursos para poder producir Hortalizas durante todo el ano, y asi no verse en la necesidad de eimgrar a otro pais.
