Felix Rafael's story

Mr. Felix Salvador Z. L. Jr. is 26 years old, lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe (in the county of La Borgoña) and is currently single. He has been a small farmer for 15 years. His future plans are to establish a pig farm to diversify his income. The young man learned to work the land from a very young age. His farther taught him so that he could support himself, since due to their poverty he couldn't go to school. Right now he has a pineapple crop that hasn't ripened sufficiently and the fruit are not developing normally; therefore he needs to apply fertilizers to improve his harvest, and he doesn't have the money to be able to buy and apply them to the crops.
