Edixon Elias
View original language description ↓

Edixon is 31 years old of age and married with 2 children ages 9 years and 3 months. They reside in the Cuajachilla region, a rural sector located on the outskirts of Managua.

Edixon is an automobile mechanic, having worked at this for 16 years, which has earned him experience and clients in the sectors adjoining the place where he resides. His workshop is located in his house. He requires the loan to buy new tools for his work since the ones that he has at present are too old and do not function 100%. He will also put a roof on his workshop, since winter is approaching and when the rains fall he cannot work and he loses many clients.
