Nelson Rene's story

Nelson is 33 years old and a native of Estelí. He is a single father with a 4-year-old son. He has made a living as a barber for more than a year. He started out in commerce, working for other people in a company, and then with the money he made he set up his own barber shop. Nelson feels very proud of growing his business every day. He has regular customers, and in this way he earns better income. This is his first business, and he expects to grow as a successful businessman. Nelson is requesting the loan to purchase scissors, combs, seats, razors, brushes, talcum powder and other items. He thinks this loan will help him to buy all of the materials his barber shop needs, and in this way he will be able to provide a better service to his customers. Among his plans for the future is to expand his barber shop and improve its infrastructure to better attract customers. One of his goals is to be able to provide employment to other people.
