Pilar's story

Pilar, a 58-year-old man, has lived in the city of Managua for 30 years and has 5 grown children. He sells clothing for a living and is also the owner of a grocery store, a business that his mother started but that he has been running for the past 3 years. Part of his daily activities consists of selling clothing on the outskirts of Managua. He has good customers in Chontales, a section located in the northern zone. His youngest son helps him to sell. His goal is to invest more in the grocery store, which needs more products. For this reason, he needs to buy staple grains, sodas, oil, snacks, cleaning products, cookies, bread, etc. His next goal is to improve the infrastructure of his home and get the grocery store in better condition.
