Octavio Edmundo's story

Octavio is fifty years old and works repairing refrigerators and freezers. He lives in the city of Esteli and is the father of four children. In the nineties he went to the United States and worked in construction. During the day he was a worker and at night he studied a technical course on refrigeration. After three years he returned to his country with the idea of starting his own refrigerator and freezer repair business. Thanks to this work he supports his family and gives an education to his children.

Right now he needs financing to buy spare parts such as refrigerants, rods, and timers. His expectation is that he'll improve his inventory of spare parts and thereby improve the infrastructure of his business in order to offer his customers quality and good service.
