Byron Jose's story

Byron is married with children, and is from León, located in the west of the country. He is known as being hard-working and responsible, with the desire to improve himself. Unfortunately, because of a lack of economic resources, he was unable to go to university, however, he would have liked to study system engineering. As a result, he fights every day to give his children a better future.

Thanks to his effort and his desire to succeed, Byron works in a grocery store. It is a small shop which sells small quantities of foodstuffs such as rice, milk, bread, detergent, oil, juice and soap. He spends around twelve hours in his store every day, and enjoys it very much.

The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock his business buying and selling foodstuffs so that in the near future, he can earn more. Byron is grateful for the help that Kiva investors give to those with limited means and poor countries such as Nicaragua.
