Octavio's story

Mr. Octavio O. P. is 52 years old and lives in the bustling neighborhood of South Laureles. He is married and his wife sells nacatamales, a typical Nicaraguan food that she mostly offers on the weekends because they are complicated to prepare. They have two adolescent children and one older son who works in his parents' pig business. Mr. O. is requesting this loan in order to reinvest in his business, which is buying pigs and later butchering them to sell. They also use the meat in the nacatamales that his wife sells. They got their start in this business thanks to the teachings of his father. This business provides daily sustenance for their family and will provide for their children's well-being into the future, so this loan is vital to the entire family's continued economic progress.
