Arturo's story

Señor Arturo A. Rodríguez is a farmer in the rural area of the municipality of Ticuantepe. For 30 years he has worked in agriculture; he began this work thanks to the support that he received from his parents, who taught him to cultivate various crops. The main difficulty that he faces is that he does not have enough resources to adequately maintain his various crops; he lacks fertilizers and supplies to improve his crops. Don Arturo has 7 children; they are all independent and 2 of them work with him. His wife works as a trader in the Oriental market in the capital city of Managua in order to cover the basic household expenses such as water and light, among others. He will buy fertilizer to increase his production.
