A loan of $1,200 helped to cultivate tomatoes.

Nelson Antonio's story

Mr. Nelson Ponzo is 40 years old and he lives in the community of Palo Verde in Pueblo Nuevo, Jinotega. He is married and he has 2 children. His education is very basic; he only passed grade 1.

As a young man he immigrated our neighbor country of Costa Rica. He saved some money and decided to return to his homeland to cultivate vegetables and basic grains.

He started out on his own, and he has always been hard working and willing to expend every effort.

He requested this loan to purchase materials and to hire help to maintain his tomato plantation. That is to say, his loan will be used as working capital.

He wishes to keep up with his vegetable plantations and to slowly improve his house. It is a very humble house.

Everything that he does is done to improve the quality of life for his family. It is something that he has always done.
