Santos Valentin
Santos, a 47 year old tobacco producer, lives in the San Antonio zone, a region in the Pueblo Nuevo – Estelí municipality. He comes from very humble beginnings. He is married and has five children.

He has been a farmer from a very early age. Among other business activities, he also devotes himself to growing tobacco.

He requested a loan in order to pay the rent on some land where he grows tobacco. He tells us that he has a contract with an important company. This company buys his product, which generates good income for him. He states that it has not been easy to reach his objectives. He had to leave his studies in the third year of high school in order to be able to work the land and pay for the household expenses.

In the future he wishes to buy a motorcycle, to buy a small house for his family, to continue working at growing tobacco, and, why not, buy land where he can plant tobacco without incurring the cost of renting the land.
