Silverio's story

Silverio is a hard-working man who lives together with his wife, who is also hard-working and makes tortillas at home. They have six children, all adults, who are married and do not live with them anymore. Silverio sold basic grains, but now sells new and used clothing. He goes to sell his products on the Atlantic coast, some 450 kilometres from Managua. He will use this new loan to buy more clothes to sell, since his business is going well and he sold all of his stock. He will buy trousers, shirts, and blouses, so as to fulfil the orders placed by customers. He is a very responsible person, and, as such, when business was sometimes slow, he turned to other trades in order to keep repaying his loans.
