Maximiliano Ramiro's story

Maximiliano Ramiro is a married adult with two children. He’s from the municipality of Chinandega located in the west of the country. He owns a line of taxis in that location where he strives daily to support his home. Maximiliano has shown himself to be a responsible, hardworking person with a strong drive towards self-improvement.

He’s wanted to make home improvements for the last year but the lack of economic resources has kept him from doing so. The objective of this loan is to remodel his house. Specifically, he’d like to install tile in the hallway of his house as well as in the kitchen and one of the bedrooms. Maximiliano’s asking for this loan to buy tile, cement, lime powder and sand, among others.
