Ricardo De Jesus's story

Mr. Ricardo de Jesus H. is 47 years old and a resident of the Reparto Juan Padilla located in the town of Ticuantepe. His wife, with whom he has three sons -- two of them are married and a 17-year-old that lives with them, works at the city's Mexico-Nicaraguan Hospital to help cover living expenses. Their youngest son goes to school and works with agriculture as well. His plans for his family include improving their living standards in order to provide a better future for his son and to help him grow to be a respectable man. Mr. Ricardo has worked with agriculture for thirty years and the biggest obstacles that have risen throughout the years have been the absence of financial support to purchase supplies and fertilizers. This credit line would be used to purchase the fertilizers needed to promote agriculture growth and a satisfactory production which will be beneficial to his personal life and the industry altogether.
