A loan of $375 helped to buy lime and salt.


Miguel Ángel's story

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Miguel makes a living trading lime and salt in the north of Nicaragua. He has had this business for eleven years, which has allowed him to provide for his family.

Before owning his small business, he was a miner in the municipality of San Rafael del Sur. However, on his own initiative and using his personal savings, he managed to establish his business, in which he is able to generate income to maintain his family.

He is now in need of financing to make his investment plan a reality by acquiring lime and salt in order to fulfill the demand of his clients, who are mainly local hardware store owners and stockbreeders.

He lives with his spouse, and the couple have two children of school age.
