Juan Guillermo's story

Juan Guillermo, aged 57, lives in the district of San Judas de Managua, an area populated by those with very scarce resources. Juan makes a living selling water and soft drinks in his home and on the street. In Nicaragua, these products are known colloquially as "bolsitas" or "boli"- drinks packaged in sealed plastic bags. With this job, he was able to raise his children, who are grown-up and independent. His wife is a housewife, and he pays both of their expenses, with his sole source of income. He needs to invest in his small business, which is why he is requesting the help of a loan to buy raw materials such as bags and products to make soft drinks, and in this way, succeed.
