Marcio Ramon
Sr. Marcio Ramon has lived in the city of Ocotal in Nueva Segovia in the north of Nicaragua for more than 21 years. He is happily married and has three school-aged children for whom he pays school fees. His spouse is a housewife.

Sr. Marcio is employed and works for a state institution. He has worked for this institution continuously for some 21 years and this job is his principal source of income to support his family. It is worth mentioning that he serves as the responsible technician in his department.

This client came to Ceprodel for the first time to apply for funding in order to make some home improvements. He needs to purchase cement in order to perfect some of the walls of his house as well as to pay for construction workers.

Sr. Marcio appears positive that he will be approved for funding because he does not have sufficient earnings to be able to assume the cost of construction on his own. As well he is the only one who works in his family and he wants to give his wife and children a roof over their heads that is worthy of them.
