Eulogio is a single father of two children. He works hard to offer them education, food, and all their needs. The business he works at is a general store which he has been developing since he was very young, at the market of Bisne in the city of Chinandega. The business started when he went through a bad financial crisis, and he tells us that it was very difficult because he had no idea how he was going to be able to support his children, and that is why he decided to invest in this business.

With the experience he acquired with time, his business grew stronger, and in this way he has been able to support his household. He has been working with CEPRODEL for a year and a half, and in this time he has been given a total of 10 loans that he has used to invest in products to sell. His need is the urgency to invest in buying merchandise.
