A loan of $500 helped to buy more cheese, curd, cream, and other things.


Santos Justiniano's story

Santos, 53, is a Managua native. He is single and a father of 3 children that have moved out. With his knowledge from school and work, he makes a living selling cheese.

Santos began his business with his boss, who also works with cheese, helping him with sales. Over time, Santos has been gaining experience and mastery of the business. Later on, he decided to start his own business.

With the administrative help of his daughter, he sells his cheese in the market. His expectation is to increase the number of products and buy more cheese to satisfy the needs of his customers.

He is requesting this loan to buy more cheese, curd, cream, and other things, since he believes that this will help him increase sales, thereby earning more money. He plans to increase production of his cheese, since his next goals are to sell his dairy products in larger quantities and invest in his business.

His dream is to buy another property so he can expand his business. This way he can move his family forward.
