Ramon Alejandro
Oranges, bananas, pineapples, mangos, apples, pears and bees in search of sweet fruit are part of the daily life of Ramón (who is known as Moncho). Ramón is 51 years old and from Jinotega. However, he lives in Estelí where he has a small fruit stall on a corner of the city's central park. Very early every morning he goes out to the market in search of fresh and juicy fruit to put on his plastic tables and sell to everybody who passes by his stall. Most of his customers are workers and students who pass by and buy their breakfast of fruit every day. Ramón has been in this business for 21 years and, as a result of his work, he has finished raising most of his 8 children. Only one child is still in school. Ramón's wife looks after their home.

Ramón needs this loan to buy fruit such as apples, grapes and pears which are products that are not harvested in their country and so are expensive and in demand with his customers. He would also like to buy snacks and soda to diversify his business. This loan will help him to buy his products more quickly and not lose sales through a lack of products. He soon hopes to grow his business and finish educating his son.
