Claudio's story

Claudio, 59, is married and is originally from the administrative division of Chinandega, which is located in the western region of the country.

Claudio makes a living selling various products which consist of cumin, pepper, cinnamon, rosemary, anise, cardamom, oregano, cloves, and other things such as peanuts and milk, since he is the owner of 50 heads of cattle which is a product that he sells both wholesale and individually in a region of Chinandega.

His business is located in the home where he lives. He has been performing this work for several years. Previously, he belonged to a Solidarity Group which now has a good credit record since they have complied with the payment deadlines without ever falling behind. Now he is requesting an individual loan for the first time seeing as how his business has increased, and thus he needs financing for the purchase of various products.
