A loan of $225 helped to purchase shoes, belts, and caps.

José Benito's story

José Benito has worked selling footwear as an ambulatory vendor in the city of León for twenty-five years. He does this work to earn a living for his family, which is made up of his wife and their three children.

He goes to his job at 8:00 a.m. and finishes at 3:00 p.m. He works this same schedule from Monday to Sunday. He travels to the city of Managua two times per week to purchase his merchandise.

José Benito came to CEPRODEL to benefit from a loan in order to purchase shoes, caps, and belts, and in that way satisfy his customers’ demand, so he will obtain more income for the well-being of his family. He hopes that his children will complete a professional degree.
