A loan of $1,275 helped purchase necessary supplies to maintain his pineapple crop.


Ricardo De Jesús's story

Ricardo lives in the Ticuantepe municipality together with his wife and children. His wife works in the municipal hospital. They share the household expenses between the two of them. Ricardo has worked the land for over 20 years, and thanks to his crops, has been able to get his family ahead.

He wants to use this loan to maintain two manzanas [about 3.5 acres] of pineapples so that they don’t get infested by pests, and so that he can give them optimum care. He will purchase fertilizers, fungicide, Triple 20, and urea.
