Chester Danilo's story

Sr. Chester is a resident of Managua but works on his pineapple crop in the town of Ticuantepe. The greatest difficulty that presents itself at this time is that he doesn't have sufficient capital to start growing his crop and maintain a production free of pests. He has the support of his father as his work as a security guard doesn't help much.

His production is sold in the markets of Managua. He has sown 1.5 manzanas [2.6 acres] of pineapple and he needs this loan to provide good maintenance of his crop and in this way offer a good pineapple production to his customers.
