Oscar's story

Oscar lives in the Cristo del Rosario neighborhood, a suburban area of Managua. He has one small son who does not yet attend school. Oscar really wants to get ahead in life and for this reason he is getting ready to study clinical psychology. At the same time, he also sells fast food such as hamburgers, soft drinks, and desserts from his home, along with his wife. The loan he is requesting is to invest in this business, which he hopes will be a success for his personal and family development.
