Juan Jose's story

Don Juan José lives in Ticuantepe, a municipality very close to the capital city of Managua. At 74 years old, he has always made a living cultivating the land, a line of work inherited from his family, who were also farmers. He works together with his wife, who travels to Managua to sell the fruits. All his children are married and independent adults.

Don Juan is now requesting a loan to improve his pineapple plantation. By purchasing fertilizers, insecticides, fungicides, urea and compost, he will obtain a better crop, he will maintain his sales and if possible, increase them.
