Modesto Adali
Modesto is from San Juan de Limay, in the municipality of Estelí. He is 38 years old, married and works as an artist, making clay figures. He has five children, 3 of which are still under his care. He started his own business 15 years ago, making small figurines of animals like owls, frogs, birds, etc. He learned how to make this art when he was 12 years old and he always dreamed of having his own business, and now he has.

His wife is supportive of his business. He sells his work in Masaya and Estelí. He does not have another source of income, and lives on the profits from this business. He is satisfied with his work because he has a good customer base.

He requested a loan to buy raw materials like paint brushes, clay, sandstone and paint, and to pay for labor, which are all of the things that are required to make the unique figurines that are made by Modesto.

He feels that the loan will help him because he will be able to buy materials to make big statues to exhibit in his store. His future plans are to have his own gallery and art exhibit. Currently there are not many artists that do this type of art. His short term goals are to make unique artistic statues, to sell for a good price.
