Domingo Antonio
Domingo, 30, has been an mechanic for the past 15 years; a skill he learned and inherited from his father. What he most desires is to buy his own lot where he can set up his vehicle dismantling shop in order to provide for his family and give a good education to his three sons who are students. He lives in Santa Rosa in the capital city of Managua on the edge of the track. His plan is to improve his small house. With this loan he will buy zinc and metal tubing to build a covered work area so that he can work under shelter from the sun since working in the sun all afternoon burns and upsets him very much. Thus the need to improve customer service as well as his personal situation. He thanks Afodenic for helping him better his work since lack of resources had kept him from building this covered area.
