Carlos Adolfo's story

Carlos is a young, very active entrepreneur who likes to work and get his family ahead. He is 30 years old, married, and the father of four children. He lives in the city of Granada and works selling vegetables and fruits. The green and yellow products make the best presentation, as he is surrounded by fresh fruits and vegetables in enormous artisanal baskets made of dried palm. He started this business through his parents, as they worked growing vegetables and would sell what they grew. Carlos helped his father until he became independent. He has always sold his parents’ products but also adds variety for his customers by traveling to Masaya to buy other vegetables that his parents don’t grow. This is how he spends his day in the Granada city market.


Carlos is requesting this loan for the purchase of onions, potatoes, tomatoes, granadillas, chayotes, passion fruit, and cabbage. His customers look for these products and his parents do not grow them, which is why he buys them outside of Granada. One of his plans is to ensure storage for his products and not have to pay for a warehouse to store his merchandise. Above all, he struggles daily to provide his children with a better quality of life.
