A loan of $1,500 helped to buy fertilizers and inputs.

Silbio Antonio's story

Silbio lives in the town of Ticuantepe with his wife, who sells fruits and vegetables to help with the household expenses since they have children to care for. Their plan for the future is to be able to put their kids through school so that they can go to university. Silbio has worked for some years as a farmer, specifically cultivating pineapple. The biggest challenge is the insects that invade the crop, because he doesn't have the financial resources to be able combat them once and for all. The white flies are totally damaging to the plantation. He wants this loan to buy fertilizer and inputs.
