A loan of $650 helped to buy fertilizer and supplies.

Cristobal Evaristo's story

Cristóbal lives in Ticuantepe with his wife who works as a fruit and vegetable merchant to help him with household expenses since his has two children in his care.

Cristóbal has been growing pineapple for several years. The greatest affliction he’s faced during the growing cycle was the strong rains that swept away a great part of the crop. With the little he was able to produce he repaid his loan but now has no capital available to invest in fertilizer and supplies needed to continue working in his pineapple crops. He will use the loan to buy fertilizer and supplies.
