Miguel Angel's story

Miguel lives in the 380 neighborhood in the city of Managua. His partner is a housewife. His children are all younger than 18 and students. Miguel works hard to give them the best.

He continues to work in the business of buying and selling scrap such as copper, bronze, aluminum, lead, and iron. He has been in the business for approximately 10 years and it has been very profitable.

This is his twelfth loan to invest in his business by buying more scrap to continue selling. He also makes the most of it when people come to him to sell and he sells to exporters and gets better profits.
