Eddy Javier's story

Eddy is 47 years old and lives in the town of Nindirí in the department of Masaya. He has had his business for nine years. His nuclear family is made up of four people including his wife and two children.

Eddy's business is a small market located in his home. He started this business with his own capital, which he received as severance pay when he worked as a salaried employee. Due to the lack of employment, he started his own project. Thanks to his hard work and dedication to supporting his family, the results have been very good.

Eddy and his wife have tried to make the business grow, and when he needs to buy merchandise to restock the store, he leaves his wife in charge. Like all developing businesses, it requires investment in the form of purchasing basic staples and groceries like rice, beans, sugar, oil, Super Marfil soap, toilet paper, salt, large packages of ketchup, Ace powdered laundry detergent, Huggies diapers, and Maseca corn flour.

Eddy believes that this loan will help him to improve his income and to grow his business so that he can offer his customers a good variety of products.
