Remigio Antonio's story

Señor Remigio has a small farm together with his family, in the Ticuantepe area. His plans for the future are to be able to improve his living conditions, and above all to support his children as much as possible in their studies so that they can become somebody. He never had this opportunity himself, because his parents are very poor, and could not provide him with an education.

Don Remigio has been growing pineapple for several years. The biggest challenges he faces are the infestations that affect his crops, as he lacks the fertilizers and supplies necessary to combat them.

His future plans for his farming is to be able to vary the pineapples he grows on his plantation, as he currently grows the Mote Lirio species.

He is grateful for the support that Afodenic is providing through Kiva, for better development in the agricultural sector.
