View original language description ↓
Don José C. rents out videogames for a living in the town of Chinandega in Nicaragua. He is the father of two school aged children, and it is his obligation to offer them the necessary conditions for their development within their society. It is very important to point out that he started his business 8 years ago and presently he has improved business and purchased videogames to be sold.

Today he needs economic resources to buy videogames, and therefore he has approached Ceprodel to obtain the loan needed to purchase these videogames to be offered to the clients that visit his business.
