Pedro Jose
Pedro is originally from the municipality of Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí, and a farmer by trade. He is married and has two children, ages 24 and 23. He began his horticulture career three years ago, at the age of 44, when his friend convinced him that cultivating tomatoes had gone well for him, and since then he has been making a living in this business.

His wife and children support him in his business. He sells his products in Managua. He has other income from selling milk, since he has a calving cow that provides him with milk. He would like to sell his products in the supermarkets because they would pay him a better price for his products.

He expects his business to expand in the area of sowing and to obtain good yields and a fair price for his products. He is requesting the loan for the purchase of fertilizer, foliar fertilizer (type of fertilizer that is mixed with water and applied directly on the plant's leaves), and pesticides to cultivate almost an acre of tomato plants.

He believes that this loan will help him a lot because he will be able to cultivate with better quality and get good yields. His future plans are the purchase of more land to expand the area he cultivates. His next goals will be to improve his home and buy another calving cow.
