Manuel De Jesús's story

Manuel de Jesús lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe standing out with his business selling food, natural beverages and fruit for eleven years. He comments that in order to earn a bit more money he works part-time as a security guard. On his days off he and his wife tend to the business. They provide food service mainly in the evenings when demand is highest. As time has passed, he’s become well-known in the zone and most of his clientele is regular and also passersby since the business is located on a busy highway between Ticuantepe and La Concepción. The loan he’s requesting will be used to buy ingredients like rice, meat, oil, cheese, beans, Coca-Cola, canned juices, etc.to make the food and beverages. He hopes that his loan will be satisfactorily approved so he can continue making the delicious dishes that his customers like so much. He states that Ceprodel has been of great help and thanks to them the business has grown and he feels better about the future.
