Ricardo José's story

Ricardo José is a teacher. He has done this work for 3 years. He is single and lives in his mother's house.

He has a mill that processes corn to make tortillas, nacatamales (a steamed meat and vegetable pasty cooked in banana or maize leaves), and baked goods (donuts). All of these items are made of corn and are popular foods in Nicaragua.

He is requesting this loan to make improvements to the site where he has the mill so that he can provide a good service to his customers.

He has this small business thanks to Ceprodel and Kiva because he has been able to obtain the equipment with his loans. This has helped him a lot because his mother attends to the business since she spends all day at home.
