Aquiles Adalberto's story

Aquiles is 62 years old and lives with his family in the region of San Esteban. He is married to Sra. Reyna Guzman, with whom he has four children. Ariel is the oldest child. He is 18 years old and working. Alejandra is a 15 year old student who is in her third year of high school. Juan is 12 years old and Diana is 9 years old. Both are in elementary school. Don Aquiles has worked as a driver for the City of Juigalpa for the past 28 years.


He is requesting his first loan from AFODENIC in order to make improvements to his home by plastering the walls and installing a ceramic floor in one of the rooms to make it more comfortable. Aquiles says his greatest wish is to have a beautiful and decent home for his family, which is why he continues to work.
