Matilde Ramon's story

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.
