Dionisio Eduardo's story

Dionisio, 62, is married and has a 22-year-old son who is economically independent. He is originally from the municipality of “El Viejo”, Chinandega region, in the western part of the country. This region is known to be good for fishing and seafood trade.

Dionisio has had this business for thirteen years now. He sells seafood at home and fishes in one of the village’s estuaries. He started this business as a way to survive and with hard work he managed to buy the fishing equipment he now has. This is what he currently does for a living.

Dionisio has received loans from the foundation and has proved to be responsible and pay on time and the right amount. He needs the loan to invest in his business; he will buy fishing equipment such as nets, rods, hooks and an engine.

Dionisio appreciates the help that Kiva lenders give to people with few resources from poor countries like Nicaragua, which allows them to have a decent job.
