Eusebio Cristino
Eusebio lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe. He lives with his wife who earns a living selling fruits and vegetables, to help with the household expenses. the plans his family has are to improve their quality of life, because currently their family is very poor and do not have a decent home. Their current house is made of plastic and wooden boards that are very deteriorated.

Eusebio has been working as a farmer for many years, specifically in the cultivation of pineapple. The thing he is struggling with most right now is the loss of fertilizer. He was cheated by the store who sold it to him, giving him fertilizer mixed with sand. He applied it to his crop, and because it lacked quality fertilizers he did not have a good harvest. The loan he is requesting will be used to provide maintenance to his crops, to buy new fertilizer and other supplies.
