Juan Carlos's story

Juan, 38 years old, in the trade of agriculture, is originally from Pueblo Nuevo in the municipality of Esteli. He is a married father of four children who are 18, 14, 12, and 5 years of age respectively. He sows vegetables. He began very young since his family makes a living in the same way. He sells the majority of his products in the same area where he lives.

He is requesting the credit to buy soluble compost, fertilizers, and pay labor costs to allow him to maintain a half block of chiltoma peppers. This financing will be a great benefit because it will allow him to manage the crop necessary to be able to obtain a good yields and a better income for the family and the business.

He will be able to expand his home and his area for the cultivation of tomato and chiltoma peppers. When he finalizes the pay for this loan, his next step would be to continue sowing tomatoes, chiltoma peppers, and tobacco in steps to earn an income all year.
