A loan of $175 helped to buy pins, bands, watch batteries and new watches.


Juan Francisco's story

Juan, 59, is originally from Managua but currently lives in Granada. He is married to the mother of his five children. He is a watch salesman. He started in the business when he was 29 with his own capital selling watches as a traveling salesman with the aim of generating resources for himself in order to get ahead with his family. He depends on the support of his wife for his business. He expects to keep growing his business. Juan is asking for a loan in order to buy pins, bands, watch batteries and new watches. He believes this loan will help him to buy all the merchandise he needs to work on his watches. His future plans include being able to invest more in his business by buying products he still does not have in his inventory.
