Eligio José's story

This gentleman, Eligio José P. Maradiaga, is sixty-nine-years-old and married. He is currently responsible only for his wife, with whom he has had seven children. His past history includes owning a footwear-sales business during the 70's and being a deputy during the 80's, and in 1994 he was the mayor of his city. He currently enjoys a retirement pension while writing a little magazine related to the town where he lives.

He has received six loans from our organization, which have allowed him to pay his personal expenses. He used the most recent one to improve his house. It's worth mentioning that with respect to his past five loans, he has been very responsible with his payments.
