Miguel Angel's story

Miguel Ángel, aged 64, is married and has 4 children who are all grown. Miguel is from the area of Jicaral, a place in the northern region of the country. Miguel Ángel butchers beef and pork and sells cattle for a living. His business consists of going around the neighboring areas, and he rides there and back on horseback. He travels up to 6 kilometers to buy cattle and pigs and then sells these to his customers, both through standing orders and new business. He has spent the past 9 years in this line of work.

Miguel has worked previously with Fundación and has proven himself to be a timely and responsible person in regards to his loan payments. He is currently seeking a loan for investment in his working capital so that he can buy a lot of pigs and horses that are currently offered at a good price, as he wants to take advantage of this opportunity to make a better profit and satisfy his customers' needs. Miguel gratefully acknowledges the assistance that the Kiva investors provide for people with scant economic resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua to have a decent working environment. Especially in a country with such lack of permanent jobs.
