View original language description ↓

Juan Francisco G. currently owns a business making and selling bricks in the municipality of Villanueva in the city of Chinandega. He does this with much effort, making bricks for use in construction to sell them in that sector of the municipality.

Currently, his business is facing the immediate need for materials for the production of the bricks. For this reason, Mr. G. seeks support from Ceprodel to obtain a loan that will allow him to purchase these materials and continue to run his brick business from his home in Villanueva.
