Jairo Ramon
Jairo Ramón, 30, is married and has two children who are 5 and 1 years old. He’s from Chinandega Department, a place located in the western part of the country. Jairo’s economic activity is a home-based ‘pulpería’ he’s had for 7 years. A pulpería is a store that sells small amounts of basic staples like packets of coffee, packets of shampoo, packets of tomato sauce, juices, bread, milk, rice, beans, sugar, natural beverages, herbal tea, milk curd, cream and pasta. The business arose by his own efforts and with some savings he had because he needed to have a business to cover household expenses since sources of steady employment do not exist. He needs the loan to invest in working capital to stock his store and offer better service. In future, his dream is to build his bedroom and to finish plastering the house. Jairo is grateful for the support Kiva lenders provide people of scarce resources and to poor countries like Nicaragua so they can have a dignified way to earn a living.
