A loan of $500 helped to purchase a donkey.

Mariano Jose's story

Mariano is 42 years old and from the Aguas Caliente/ Teustepe region in the municipality of Boaco. He is a farmer and the father of one son who is 8 years old and in third grade. He works planting corn and buying and selling cattle. He works at this business with the support of a friend. He began with his own capital, money that he earned as a lumberjack. He sells his staple goods in the same region.

Mariano is requesting the loan to purchase a donkey, which will enable him to transport his staple goods from one region to another. His expectation is to increase his sales and thus, obtain greater profits for his business, since he estimates that this loan will help him to grow his business and move forward with his family. His future planes are to pay back his loan and request another to purchase cattle.
