Hilario Trinidad's story

Hilario, a merchant, is originally from the region the Rodeo, municipality of Pueblo Nuevo, Estelí. He is married with 2 children and a grandchild that are living with him, all are currently studying. The eldest is studying at the university.

Started his activities in the workshop of elaboration and sale of donuts 10 years ago when he returned from Costa Rica when he was 41 year old. He learned from his wife that had previously been making a living from donuts when he was outside the country. Then, when the return brought a bit of money and put the donut's workshop.

This is his first business in which he is helped by his wife and children. His product is marketed in the nearby areas in an itinerant manner. He has other income such as the purchase and sale of cheese also done in an itenerant manner. He would you like to sell his product to the supermarkets because he could sell at a better price. The expectation is to increase the production of donuts. Another goal for his business is to increase the revenues and invest in the purchase of large pots and improve the oven.

He requested the loan to purchase corn, butter, cheese and margarine, the raw material, for the elaboration of donuts. His future plans are to improve his home, that his son finishes his career and to build another oven for baking donuts.
