A loan of $275 helped buy supplies and fertilizers to apply to his crops.

Heliodoro's story

Heliodoro López Hernández, 45, lives in the San Caralampio neighborhood in the Ticuantepe municipality. He lives with his wife; she helps with the household expenses. They have four young children who are currently in school. The family plan is to improve their living conditions.

He has been a farmer for ten years. The biggest difficulty he has is the gas expelled by the volcano because it affects a large part of the pineapples. In the future, he would like to be able to maintain his crops better. With the loan he will buy fertilizers and supplies to apply to his crops. This way he will be able to have better production.
