Jorge Luis's story

Jorge Luis is a married adult with two minor-age children. He is originally from Villanueva, which is located in the northern part of the Chinandega region. He is the owner of a veterinary pharmacy. He gets his products from suppliers that distribute in the zone and he purchases the items with cash. He does his selling by cash and credit. He also offers specialty veterinary services, which is what he studied at the university.

He began his business when he was still studying veterinary medicine. He was able to do this with the support of his mother and with the intention of helping with his school expenses; his mother could not fund his studies since his sister was also beginning to study at the university. They did not count on the support of his father.

Today, he has been in this business for five years. He is requesting funding in order to invest in his business, particularly in the purchase of various medicine products for his pharmacy. In doing this, he will be able to generate higher profits.

One of his dreams is to expand his business more and to offer a better life to his children.
