Donaldo Antonio's story

Donaldo Antonio is 48 years old, married, and has two children ages 16 and 19. They attend middle school and university. Originally from Chinandega, he is retired and has been a merchant for 19 years. He has a general store on his property and sells basic grains, cosmetics, clothing, frozen products, candy, and other things. He also delivers on foot with his wife’s help. She works as a nurse in the health center in one of the settlements. He started his business with the help of his pension and his wife’s salary. He has not gotten any other loans before and plans to use the money to invest into his small business so that he can offer a greater variety of products to satisfy his customer demands. In this way he will be able to provide an education and better future for his children.
