Concepción's story

Condega is a municipality that is located in the northern part of the administrative division of Estelí, known as the "land of potters" for its craft work and hard-working people. Concepción lives in a surrounding community with his wife and three children, who he is obligated to support and give an education to. Professionally, he is a basic grain farmer and works with livestock on a small scale.

He is known as an honest and hard-working person. He has a property that extends 42 acres, with different types of areas for agricultural and livestock exploitation.

Recently, he visited the Ceprodel office and is requesting a loan for the purchase of fertilizer, herbicide and fungicide as well as more labor, to be used where he thinks it will be beneficial and appropriately maintain his corn and bean crops.

He has taken out ten loans for this type of activity, having worked with Ceprodel for eight years. The impact and benefits that they have had for him and his family have been positive. Since they work on their farm sowing crops during each cycle, they have improved their standard of living and economic conditions with the income obtained when each harvest is carried out.
