Pablo Pedro's story

Pablo is a farmer by trade. He is married and has three children. He was born in Comarca Tomatoyita and has been cultivating basic grains such as corn and beans for 22 years. He started in agriculture as a child working in the country. When he grew up he travelled to Costa Rica to work in the coffee plantations, clearing land and preparing it for sowing, or picking coffee. With the income he was able to buy his animals and land. He now earns his living harvesting corn and beans and raising animals on the side as he only has a few. His oldest son and one worker help him to work in the fields. He sells his products in Managua.

He is asking for a loan to buy a cow and fertilizer to sow corn. He hopes to improve his harvests of maiz and to obtain a quality production with good returns. For the moment he hopes his earnings will allow him to repay the loan so that he is able to invest in the purchase of more animals and land to sow.
