A loan of $875 helped to purchase CDs, sunglasses, and cellphone cases.

Jaime Gonzalo's story

Jaime, whose business is selling music CDs, has been working this way for ten years in the city of Estelí. He began this business when he was twenty years old. He started out with capital he had saved from his previous job, working in a supermarket. One day he decided to start his own business. He had very little merchandise and sold few music CDs. Now, in addition to CDs he sells sunglasses, cellphone cases, and shirts. Little by little, he has supplied his business this way.
He has requested the loan to purchase CDs, sunglasses, and cellphone cases. His idea is to continue varying the products he sells which are currently popular. He hopes to have a general merchandise store and have the capital to provide his family with a roof over its head.
