View original language description ↓

Armando C. is originally from the municipality of Condega. For three years he has had a business selling gasoline and diesel. To begin this business, he needed the permission of the local authorities, and once he had that he began by selling to a small number of customers, slowly growing his business and increasing his customer base.

To continue to be successful, Armando has requested loans from Ceprodel to invest in more fuel. With the income from his work he is able to take care of his wife and three children.

El caballero Armando C. es originario del municipio de Condega quien desde hace 3 años se dedica al negocio de venta de gasolina y diesel teniendo una pequeña maquina que le permite traspasar el combustible por medio de una manguera. Para lograr tener este negocio solicitó un permiso a las autoridades del municipio y al habérselo otorgado inicio con la venta del combustible con pocos clientes y a medida que el tiempo ha transcurrido ha venido incrementando su clientela y mejorando su actividad.

Para llevar a cabo su labor, el señor Armando C. ha solicitado créditos en Ceprodel para invertirlos directamente en la compra del combustible y de esta manera mantener a su esposa y sus tres hijos que son su núcleo familiar al que tiene la obligación de mantener.
