Norberto's story

Mr. Norberto S. is 47 years old and lives in Borgona in the municipality of Ticuantepe. He lives with his wife who sells food on weekends to help him with the costs of paying for water, electricity and the food they need. They have three children, two of whom are already married and a young man of 18 who is currently studying in high school. Mr. Noberto's plan for his family is to buy land for each of his children.

Mr. Norberto has been working for 25 years as a farmer, and by his own efforts, he strives to buy land and work on it. He thanks the institution for the proper approval of his second loan and the technical assistance, which helped him to improve production. He promises to repay the loan in a timely manner. He also has a van, which he purchased to deliver his fruits such as pineapple at the central market. With this loan, he plans to buy fertilizer in order to improve production of his pineapples and sell them at a good price.
