Eliazar Miguel's story

San Sebastián de Yali, is a municipality located in the northern part of Jinotega Department, known for its forested area and many species of orchids, with land suitable for agriculture and livestock-raising.

In an adjoining community known as El Vijagual, Eliazar lives with his wife and his three children whom he has the duty to support and educate.

A farmer by occupation, growing basic staples, he is known as an honest and hard-working person with more than 15 years of experience. His property is 9 manzanas in area (about 16 acres), all of which are suitable for growing corn, beans and vegetables.

Recently he visited our offices, requesting a loan to buy manure, fungicides, herbicides and pay for labor to maintain his bean and potato crops, where he hopes to come out with a profit.

The impact and benefits will be positive for him and his family, as they operate their farm and grow these crops each year, improving their economic situation with the income obtained in each successful harvest.
