Trinidad Antonio
Trinidad Antonio, 69, is married and has three adult children who are economically independent. He’s from the town of Corinto that’s located in the west of the country and is noted for being a coastal place whose main activity is fishing; because of its ports it’s a very touristy zone.

Trinidad’s economic activity is a grocery store and he also sells milk curd at home and from place to place. He’s been in this economic activity for 32 years. He started it with the milk curd sales and he currently supplies the majority of grocery stores and sales points in the port of Corinto. He takes advantage of his house’s location since just north of it is the navy base and he sells his products to it.

Trinidad Antonio has worked in the past with Fundación León 2000 and he’s been responsible and punctual with his payments. The objective of this loan is to invest in working capital to stock his store more and be able to meet customer demand.

A ‘pulpería’ grocery store is a shop where products like little bags of shampoo or a single box of matches, a pound of sugar or a single bread roll, cornmeal/cocoa powder mix and ice are sold in small quantities. Trinidad is grateful for the opportunity Kiva lenders are providing for people of scarce resources and poor countries like Nicaragua.
