Oscar Danilo
Oscar Danilo, resides in Nandasmo, also known as one of the "Pueblos Blancos" (white villages). It is known for its rich variety of handicrafts and for sales of garden plants. This municipality is part of the Masaya department.

Oscar is 52 years old, married and his immediate family consists of his wife and his two children. He has had a business for 12 years, as previously he worked in another workshop. He gained his experience by working with his father, but decided to launch his own business and began making styles of furniture that his father had taught him. But he saw that the demand was moving toward other modern styles, so he needed to do make better products with new designs that would bring greater income—so he did so

Now he has his own styles, which he feels have been accepted by his customers, and for which there is a great deal of demand. He is also seeking a way to continue innovating, in such a way that he won't find himself being left behind in the market. The furniture that he sells includes bedroom sets, cabinets, doors, dining room tables and other items. In short, he has tried to little by little have a great variety to offer to his customers.

The loan he is requesting is to buy Spanish cedar, paint thinner, wood sealant, aguacate wood, wood glue, screws and sandpaper, so that he can meet his customer demand.
