A loan of $1,200 helped to buy fertilizers and inputs.

Carlos Luis's story

Mr. Carlos Luis L. P. is 42 years old and lives in the town of Ticuantepe with his wife, who works as a domestic employee to help cover their cost of living. They have three children; the oldest is married and the younger two are in school. Carlos has the dream of one day buying a used truck so that he doesn't have to pay transport fees anymore, since every time he moves his product to the market he has to pay for transportation to be able to sell it. His major difficulty is the lack of resources to be able to establish a larger plot of pineapple and therefore bring in more money. Carlos has been growing pineapple for 2 years. Pineapple needs help to get a good size, flavor and color. The loan will be used to buy fertilizers and other inputs.
