A loan of $300 helped buy a crankcase cylinder to give his customers good service.

Jem Erick's story

Jem U., 27, is a high school teacher. He teaches classes in the mornings. In the afternoons he drives a taxi, which gives him good earnings. His goal is to be able to have his own house when he starts out on his own. He lives with his parents in the Reparto Shick neighborhood in the capital of Managua.

As a plan, he wants to be able to complete his career. He has worked since he was young, and he likes having his own money. With the loan from Afodenic he wants to buy a crankcase cylinder. He has his own vehicle, but it is in bad shape. He earns a lot of income from the vehicle when working.

He is grateful to the institution for being able to fix his vehicle because it will bring him benefits.
