Dany José's story

Don Dany is originally from the town of Nindirí in the Department of Masaya. He is 33 years old and a merchant by trade. His family consists of four individuals: himself, his two young children, and his wife. Dany previously worked as a gardener and chauffeur, but his salary was very low. In addition, he has been able to spend little time with his children because on most days he arrives home from work very late at night.


Dany saw the need to start his own business so that he could provide better care of his children and give them a good education. He has now been in business for six years and is prospering. Dany buys and sells secondhand shoes at one of the markets in Jinotepe. He is a traveling merchant and already has customers who only buy from him when he delivers the orders they have placed. Dany has his own clientele and feels satisfied with the progress he has made since all of his efforts have been rewarded. He has been able to improve his quality of life and provide more comfortable conditions for his family.


Dany came to the offices of CEPRODEL to request a loan so that he could buy merchandise such as a variety of shoes, work boots, and a mix of oversized goods. Since he does not have inventory, Dany will now be able to fulfill his customers’ orders more quickly and earn more profits for his business.
