Perfecto is a native of the district of La Cuesta, on the outskirts of Boaco. He is married and has two children of 13 and 9. The oldest is in 7th grade and his little girl is in 2nd grade in the district’s school.

Perfecto works growing corn, beans, and wheat; he also sells plastic and aluminum products like kettles, plastic trays, cups, and mosquito net bars as an ambulatory vendor in other villages around Boaco. He began his business 10 years ago with money that his brother lent him. Currently, with the earnings from his business, he has purchased his animals, and he hopes to improve his house.

In order to carry out his agricultural work, he pays for assistants; he also pays two boys from the area to help him sell his merchandise. He sells the harvest of corn, beans, and wheat right here in the district in order to avoid too many expenses, because he doesn’t have his own vehicle to transport his harvest from the district.

Today, he is requesting this loan in order to buy pots, mosquito net bars, cups, and spoons. Perfecto says that with this loan, he will be able to further fortify his business with more merchandise. In addition, he has two people to whom he gives work, and when he sells more, he will have more income to pay them more for the sales. He also says that once he settles his debt, he will take out another loan in order to sell more household products and strengthen his crops of basic grains.
