Mr. Denis G. is a 44-year-old married father of 3 underage children. His wife is a homemaker who looks after their children. Mr. G. has a business in Villa Flor, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Managua. He sells motor oil, and he also offers carwash services. Mr. G. started out with a small inventory, but it has slowly increased. With this expansion, he has been able to set up a carwash. Currently, his goods and services are in high demand, so Mr. G. needs to invest in his business, thus further expanding it.
