A loan of $450 helped to purchase a motor for his mill.


Ruben Dario's story

Señor Rubén lives in the department of Estelí. He is married, and a businessman by trade who has been providing milling services for the last three years. He is the father of six children, of whom he's responsible for only two.

He began his activity with his own capital and the support of his daughter. Previously he worked in a factory, but he decided to leave it due to health problems. He is satisfied with his business as he has his own customers and it is a stable business which earns income on a daily basis for food.

He is requesting this loan for the purchase of a motor for his mill. He expects that the loan will help him, as he will be able to make repairs to his mill which will allow him to do his work without difficulties.

His future plans are to take advantage of those seasons with most work to increase his income and be able to move ahead in life. His next goal is to purchase additional mills so as to give his customers better service, and to make improvements to his home so as to live comfortably.
