Duglas Uriel's story

Duglas is 29 years old and he is originally from a small community called Palo Verde, located in Pueblo Nuevo in the municipality of Esteli. He cultivates produce. He started in the business at a very early age. He went to Costa Rica to look for a better work opportunity. He managed to purchase some land there and that is where he has his plantations today and where he established his home. He has 1/2 a field of tomatoes and he sells his products in his own community but he would like to sell in the central markets in Esteli to obtain a good price. He requests a loan to purchase ingredients, fertilizers and to hire help. He hopes to have a good yield in the harvest and to provide better maintenance to the cultivations. His goal is to purchase more farm land and to purchase a vehicle to transport his products outside of Esteli.
