Eduardo Jose's story

Eduardo is a humble man, 51 years old, originally from Managua, single, father of 2 children who are 27 and 28 years old, respectively, and works in the grocery store business being an owner for more than 6 years. He only finished the 6th grade of primary school.

Eduard began working when he was very young, in a mechanics workshop, but later he saw that they paid him very little so he decided to quit, eventually deciding to start his own business, his grocery store, because he needed a way to survive and generate income for himself. He says that he is doing well in his business, because he is earning income daily, has regular customers, receives other income such as the remittance that his brother sends and the money that they give him for room rentals.

He is asking for funding to buy soft drinks, rice, sugar, cookies, beans, and canned food such as tuna, sardines and also to buy 3 sheets of zinc. He has the goal of buying all the merchandise that is not in inventory so that he can increase sales and obtain better profits.
