Luis Guillermo
Luis, 44, is single and the father of one child, age 8. He lives in the city of Managua.

He's a merchant by trade and makes a living selling pupusas. He started selling "vigorón" [yucca, pork rind, and cabbage], a delicious traditional food. Then he bought an industrial stove and started selling pupusas, which are small tortillas made of corn, cheese, and pork rinds. With this type of food his costs are low and his profit is better.

He sells nears industrial companies and factories where there are always a lot of customers. Although he doesn't have a kiosk, he goes out to earn an honest living for himself with the few resources he does have.

He's requesting a loan to buy corn flour, oil, cheese, pork rind, and gas for his stove.

He wants to have his own place so he won't have to sell on the street and to be able to store his kitchen utensils more securely. His goal is to give his son a good education.
