Roberto Antonio's story

Roberto G. L. is 27 years old and lives in San Caralampio, Negra hill en Ticuantepe with his wife who helps him with household matters. They care for their two children, a 13-year old boy that currently goes to school and a 10-year old girl that also attends school. Their plans as a family are to improve their home, to have a better quality of life for their children, and to help them with their studies. For ten years, he has worked as a producer. The major problem that presents itself is the lack of financing. He began his agricultural activities with the help of his mother-in-law, who gave him a parcel of land so that he could work. His plan for the future of his crops is to diversify. With this financing, he will buy fertilizer and consumables so that he will be able to have a good harvest and good sales in the market.
