Luciano Antonio's story

Mr. Luciano Antonio Martínez is 66 years old and lives in the Reparto Chic neighborhood, located in the city of Managua, with his wife and children. He has a small farm, which he has managed to cultivate after much effort, located near the rivers of the municipality of Ticuantepe. He spends the majority of his time on his farm because he is keeping watch over anything that may happen. His wife supports him in their household. Mr. Luciano has two school age daughters under his care. His older children help him with the household expenses. He plans on improving his family’s living conditions so that he can offer them a better future. Mr. Luciano has been working in agriculture for 20 years. With this loan, he will purchase fertilizers to use on his pineapple crops so that he can sell more produce at a higher cost.
