Matilde Ramon
Matilde is 50 years old and is a farmer by trade. He's originally from Pueblo Nueva in the municipality of Estelí. He has two children, ages 14 and 17, and has 29 years of experience as a farmer. His father taught him how to plant tobacco, which his father would sell to a company in Estelí. Ever since then he has been gaining experience with this type of cultivation. He makes a living planting corn, but he lacks modern machinery that would quicken the planting process and reduce his costs. It's for this reason he is requesting an irrigation system that he can use to water his crops. He would like to expand his planting area very soon.

Don Matilde de 50 años de edad, de oficio agricultor, originario de Pueblo Nueva municipio de Estelí , tiene 2 hijos de 14 y 17 años de edad respectivamente , con 29 años de experiencia en esta actividad. Su padre le enseño a sembrar tabaco quien vendía su cosecha a una empresa Tabacalera en Estelí desde entonces ha adquirido experiencia con este tipo de cultivo. Además se dedica a la siembra de maíz pero siente que le hace falta equipos modernos que le ayuden hacer mas rápido su proceso de siembra y reducir costos. Es por ello que requiere el préstamo para comprar un motor de riego para utilizarlo en el proceso de hidratación de sus cultivos. Por lo pronto le gustaría ampliar sus áreas de siembra.
