Juan Carlos
Juan is from the pretty city of Matagalpa, known as the “Pearl of the North”. He is married with three school-aged children. He is known as a person with good morals.
His last loan was very useful as he was able to make improvements to his home. For the past six years he has worked as an agent for pipe and sewage company.
He is asking for this loan in order to pay for medical expenses. He needs to buy medicine for his mother’s chemotherapy. Her health is fragile and the medicine is very expensive. He has to take her to the capital for treatment. This is an urgent problem.
