Emilio Bienvenido's story

Emilio Bienvenido is 47 years old, married with two children and comes from the department of Chinandega, located in the western part of Nicaragua. In his free time he likes to enjoy the company of his wife and children. Unfortunately, due to a lack of economic resources, he could not pursue a university education as he was forced to work from an early age by the extreme poverty in which his family lived.

At present, his dreams and goals are to be able to educate his children to be professionals and provide them a better future. Thanks to his entrepreneurial spirit and his desire to get ahead he has been building their house little by little with the income that he has from his work as an electrician in a cooking oil manufacturing company doing maintenance. Emilio, in this moment, is requesting financing to build a room and also to put a floor in another room that he built through his own efforts and so buy construction materials such as: corrugated metal roofing, cement, sand, lime, rebar, wire, wood and nails, among other things.
