A loan of $1,100 helped to buy fertilizers and supplies.


Juan Santiago's story

Juan lives in the town of Ticuantepe; he lives there with his wife, a retailer who sells fruits and vegetables to help him paying for their family’s expenses. They have two daughters who are still economically depending on them. In the future he wants to improve the living condition of his house. With much effort they pay for the education of their daughters so that they can get ahead in life and succeed in becoming professionals despite of their economic difficulties, as they are humble farmers surviving thanks to pineapple growing. Juan has been engaged in growing pineapple for various years, and the biggest problem he has to face is the theft of his products: for this reason he has to keep watch day and night in the lands where he plants pineapple. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy fertilizers and supplies he needs for his production.
