A loan of $425 helped to purchase plastic utensils, bags and an industrial stapler.

Jose Nicolas's story

José a native of Estelí, is 55 years old, a father of 4 children aged: 18, 22, 25 and 30, and is a retailer. He first started working selling plastic with his own capital, but then he learned how to pack spices such as cinnamon, chamomile, pepper, rosemary, and eucalyptus. At the age of 37, once he realized that this business was generating a lot of income, he began to distribute his products in neighboring communities like Palacaguina, Sauce, Limay and Condega.

He wants to stock his store in order to offer more products to his clients. For this reason, he is asking for this loan in order to purchase
plastic utensils, bags and an industrial stapler. He believes that this loan will be of great help because with it he will be able to purchase more products and increase his business's earnings. In addition, he will a have the opportunity to expand his business and offer his clients more products. His expectations are to grow financially and continue distributing his products in all of the supermarkets. His future plans are to better his life and be able to purchase a mode of transportation to be able to distribute his products all over Nicaragua.
