A loan of $500 helped to buy a professional photography camera.


Francisco's story

46-year-old Jose lives in Pueblo Nuevo in Estelí municipality and is married and the father of two children. He is, by profession, a secondary school teacher and also photographs and films events. He started this business through a friend who suggested that offering his services as a photographer would help him obtain another source of income and to enable his children to study. He sees the necessity of modernizing in order to offer an improved service. He took the loan to buy a professional photography camera, since he needs to offer a good service to his clients. He already wants to become known and to promote his services for events, weddings, baptisms and birthdays. One of his plans is to have his own photo developer instead of going to the city of Estelí to develop his photos and to save costs. He always continues giving classes to be able to have the income that allows him to pay for university for his children.
