Sr. Edmundo is 60 years old, married, and a woodworker by trade. He resides in the Department of Masaya. His dream was to have his own video game business where the neighborhood children could pass the time after they finished school.
The idea for this business emerged because he needed to find another source of income since he was not able to find work as a furniture maker. With the help of his wife, Edmundo established a few small businesses so that he could help their children get ahead. As a result, he was able to help his oldest son with his university studies.
Edmundo came to the offices of CEPRODEL so that he could request a loan in order to buy accessories, including video game discs and controls for the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation 2. He says this loan will help him acquire the games that the children are interested in, which will help him maintain his stream of income.

In addition, unlike many microfinance institutions in the area that have chosen to avoid the rural areas of the country due to the increased financial risk, CEPRODEL provides financial services to numerous clients in the agriculture and livestock industry.
