Danny José
Danny José is a merchant whose business consists of buying and selling secondhand shoes. He has been in the marketplace for six years. Danny previously sold new shoes, but he now sees that this type of business is more favorable. His sales are conducted at the market in Jinotepe on a cash basis. He and his wife work together and the two of them are able to move their business forward.

Danny came to the offices of CEPRODEL to request a loan in order to buy women's shoes, unisex shoes, and children's shoes. By having new merchandise to offer to his customers, he will be able to keep up with demand.
