Manuel Jerónimo
Manuel Jerónimo is married and lives in Masaya department. He has 23 years experience in making footwear for ladies, men and schoolchildren. He has customers who buy his products from Costa Rica. Most of his customers are from Masaya.

Manuel has always worked with loans and he says that they are very helpful as they have enabled him to make progress in his business. As it is currently the back-to-school season, he needs to invest more in his business. For this reason, he approached Ceprodel to request a loan to invest in buying materials such as yellow and white glue, fine lining, fiber, shank plates, boxes, thread, eyelets, platforms and patent leather. This will enable him to cover his demand quickly and he will be able to further increase his sales.
