Anibal's story

Aníbal, 52 years old, lives in the city of Esteli. He has seven children. He is a businessman; he sells meat, and he has been in this business for 20 years. When he started this business, he started with his own money. Before that, he drove a taxi. He saw that it was not providing income, so then he sold plastic products such as pans, plates, and glasses. Later, he began selling meat, and he feels this business generates the most revenue. He wife helps him with this business by attending to the customers.

He is requesting this loan for working capital. He wants to have more products to offer; he needs more meat in his inventory because demand is high. He hopes to satisfy his customer demand and improve his sales. He wants to remodel his butcher shop so that he will have better infrastructure and a cleaner-looking place of business.
