Paublino
Paublino is from the El Zapote district. He’s married and has 8 children but only four of them are still in his care. He also has a grandson and only one 11-year-old son is attending the local school; he’s a fifth-grader. His wife’s a housewife.

Paublino is a small farmer who has worked growing corn, beans and wheat since he was 14-years-old. He works tilling the soil. Back in those days all the work was done by hand and supplies weren’t needed like they are now; they are now fundamental in order to produce better crops. He owns the land he works and he’s purchased his cows with income earned from the harvests. His children help him create his orchards and when he gathers his harvests he sells them in the market in Boaco. Paublino says that he’d like to sell his crops in Managua because they pay better there.

He’s asking for this loan to buy a solar panel for his house because he does not have electricity because he’s far from the community so he’s always lighted his house with a gas lamp. Paublino also relates that by acquiring this new solar panel system his family and his house will be in better conditions because they won’t be lighting lamps any longer and they will have light at all hours of the night too which will help him tend to his grocery store which is a new business he has that his wife manages.
