Roberto Antonio
Roberto is 49 years old and lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe with his wife who helps him care for the crops. They have four children, all of whom work and are independent. His future plan is to be able to protect his small and humble farm from animals that damage his crops by installing a fence around the perimeter of the land. Roberto has worked as a pineapple farmer for 25 years and the greatest difficulty he faces is not having enough money to provide good maintenance to his crops. He wants the loan to purchase fertilizers and supplies to apply to his crops and obtain a very good-quality product.
