Carlos is 58 years old and he lives in a neighbourhood within the capital city of Managua called Riguero. His wife has given him two children, aged 21 and 25 years of age, and they are both working. Carlos sells clothing and plastic products and he has been doing so for the past 5 years. He started out when he was layed off from the work he had before. With the loan he is requesting he will invest in the purchase of clothing for ladies and gentlemen, especially because he has many orders already placed. He wants to take advantage of the clientele that comes with the season. In the future he hopes to set up a tailoring shop and increase his sales.
