Pastor's story

Pastor, who is over the age of majority, is married and has six adult children. He is from one of the municipalities of Chinandega, which is located in the western part of the country, where rum, sugar and cane production dominate. One of the biggest factories in the country is also located there.

Pastor works sowing squash seeds, bananas, corn, and acorn squash, among other crops. He also works selling seafood, especially fish. He started his business 35 years ago. At the beginning he saw it as something temporary, but then it became the main means of subsistence for his family, and it was through this business that he was able to help his children to get ahead.

Pastor sells his products as a street vendor in the areas surrounding his home. He makes his purchases in cash in one of the municipalities in his region.

One of his dreams is to provide his family with economic stability and to have better earnings in order to improve his business. He is requesting this loan for working capital to invest in buying fish, urea, squash seeds, acorn squash and corn, among other items. This will help him to improve his earnings at his business.
