Jose Alejandro
José, 61, is from the region of La Pava Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí. He is married and works as a farmer.

He has always liked dairy cattle, so every year when he has good earnings from selling corn, beans, and coffee, he buys a calved cow to increase his number of livestock and his milk production. He makes and sells cheese curd to diversify his income. Everything started when he was 26 years old, when he inherited two plots of land from his father. He later cultivated beans on the land, and that year he obtained good production. With his earnings, he bought his first calved cow. In the following years, he repeated the process, and today he has eight calved cows.

His children and wife support him with his agriculture and livestock activities. He sells his products in his town, and he would like to sell them in supermarkets because they would sell at a better price. His goals in terms of his business are to increase his number of calved cows to increase milk production, as well as to increase his production of coffee and basic grains. He has applied for this loan to buy fertilizer, manure, and fungicides to avoid infestation, and to pay for labor costs to maintain the three plots of coffee. He wishes to buy machinery and equipment to facilitate the farm labor, fighting every day for a better quality of life.
