Hector Manuel's story

Héctor is originally from Siuna. Currently he lives in Estelí. He is 28 years old and the father of two children between the ages of 5 and 2 years old, respectively. He is a merchant. He started with his own capital, money he got from selling bananas.

He is currently the owner of a grocery store, and has owned it for more than a year. This has been his first business upon which his family depends on daily. He would like to sell his products in the same area, with the expectation of increasing his sales and to obtain better earnings.

Héctor is asking for a loan in order to buy more products such as rice, beans, sugar, chicken, and clothing. All the merchandise is needed to supply his store, which he thinks will be of help, because he can invest in his business buy buying the product most requested by his customers. His future plan is to be able to expand his business, to attract more customers, with the objective of having better earnings. His next goal is to improve his house in order to have better living conditions.
