Jose Orlando
Among pans, flour, and a hot oven we find Jose, a humble baker. He is originally from the department of Madriz in the northern region of Nicaragua, but he has lived in the city of León for 46 years. He is 60 years old and a father of five children, all of whom are independent. He has 45 years of experience in this business as he started out as a baker's helper when he was very young cleaning pans, arranging bread, and also selling bread. Later he went on to bake bread with his own hands, mixing different kinds of flour, and from there he progressed little by little until one day he was able to start the bakery business with his wife that he's had for 20 years. She passed away, and so it was up to him and his children to take charge, which is how he and his family have survived throughout the years.

He is asking for this loan to buy raw materials, such as flour, lard, yeast, sugar, cheese, and firewood. With this investment he will be able to supply the raw material he needs to produce more and to improve his sales. He wants to remodel his bakery and to help one of his sons to open his own bakery business.
