Oscar Leonel
View original language description ↓
Mr. Oscar C. O. sells replacement parts and accessories for motorcycles at a store in the municipality of Condega of the city of Estelí. At a young age he showed interest on motorcycles and for that reason, three years ago Mr. C. O. began his business selling few parts. As time has passed, he has been able to sell larger quantities of replacement parts in the municipal region where he lives, which has improved his economic situation.

Ceprodel has been a key player on the development of his business since it has given Mr. C. O. three loans, that he used to acquire motorcycle replacement parts. Nowadays, one of his greater needs is the urgency to purchase more replacement parts in order to sell them. It is for that reason that he expects Ceprodel to provide him with another loan so he can continue to develop his business and thus, support his family .

Translated from Spanish by Antonella Sacconi, Kiva Volunteer.

La actividad económica del caballero Oscar C. O. es la venta de repuestos y accesorios para motocicletas teniendo su establecimiento en el municipio de Condega de la ciudad de Estelí. Desde muy joven ha tenido inclinación hacia las motocicletas y por este motivo comienza su negocio con pocos repuestos desde hace tres años pero a medida que ha venido transcurriendo el tiempo ha mejorado su situación vendiendo mayores cantidades de repuestos en su localidad.

Ceprodel ha sido uno de los ejes fundamentales para el desarrollo del negocio por el motivo de que le ha proporcionado créditos (3 créditos) que han sido utilizados por el señor Oscar en la adquisición de los repuestos para la motocicleta. Hoy en día una de sus mayores necesidades es la urgencia de la compra de los repuestos para comercializarlos. Es por este motivo que espera que Ceprodel le otorgue el crédito para continuar con su negocio y así sostener su núcleo familiar.
