A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seeds and to pay for the labor costs to plant a field of tomatoes.

Jarvin Ramon's story

Jarvin, resident of the city of Jamali, Esteli, works in agriculture planting vegetables and basic grains. He has 3 children. He has been working in farming for 16 years. He tells us that the help he has already received in the form of previous loans has been crucial for him to make his harvests on time and to ensure he is able to maintain his fields, as this requires significant capital which he does not have. He is about to begin planting tomatoes, and as a result is requesting this loan in order to be able to buy seeds and pay for the labor costs it will require. He hopes to produce a good harvest in order to begin planting new varieties of vegetables afterwards.
