Julio Alberto's story

Mr. Julio Alberto V. M. is 49 years old and lives in the neighborhood of "Los Rios" in Ticuantepe with his wife, who works selling fruit to cover house expenses. They have a daughter who is studying in elementary school. They plan to improve their living conditions. He has been working in agriculture for 22 years, starting by his own efforts. He plans to increase production in order to guarantee the well-being of his family by getting more income. He asks for financing because his crops lack fertilizer and they are weakening little by little. He hopes this will result in good production of fruit to sell at a better price at the market.
