A loan of $500 helped to buy a serigraph plotter.


Jairo Josue's story

Jairo, 24, is single and is a native of Esteli. He is a merchant who has a cyber cafe. He is now in his 3rd year studying for a degree in computer systems engineering. He has two years of experience with his business. He started out with money that he had saved, because he previously had a video game business. But he decided to quit that business because he didn't have time to tend to two businesses, and he saw that the cyber cafe would generate more income because it is a more profitable business. Also, the business is allowing him to put into practice what he has learned at the university. He needs a loan to buy a serigraph plotter to make silkscreens, with which he plans start up another business for which there is a lot of demand on the part of his customers. With this machine, he will make T-shirts and silk-screened posters. He considers himself to be a very dynamic and enterprising youth, with a strong desire to get ahead. In the future he plans to finish his degree, so that he can become a person who is more competitive in the market, and buy other computers to expand his business.
