A loan of $1,200 helped to buy supplies and pay for labor to plant tomatoes.

Elvin Antonio's story

Elvin, 33, works as a farmer and is from La Concordia in the town of Jinotega. He has worked growing vegetables since he was young, work that is a tradition for him because his parents and siblings do the same work. The previous loan he had was to plant cabbage. He bought supplies, paid for labor, and managed to sell his crop because of the quality he produced.

Now he is requesting this new loan to plant tomatoes. The loan will help him cover the expenses that this type of crop requires. He hopes that his crop will be as good as the first one, and to invest in the business of buying and selling livestock.
