Milciades Lenin's story

Milciades who is 40 years old, lives in the city of Managua. He is the father of a 9-year old son who is in primary school. He makes his living repairing televisions, irons, fans and blenders. He also has a small business renting video games. Previously, Milciades made his living selling medications, but he felt the need to start his own business and stop subcontracting to other companies. With the clearance sale from his previous business, he started making improvements to his house and purchasing tools to repair electronics. He has been making his living in this business now for ten years, in addition to renting video games. Milciades needs the loan to purchase spare parts and accessories for TV, sound equipment and Nintendo repairs. This will allow him to offer a better service to his customers and at the same time to keep his Nintendos in good condition. In the future, Milciades would like to have an electric appliance repair workshop in a bigger space as well as a video game store.
