Trinidad Antonio's story

Trinidad Antonio is a married adult from the municipality of Chinandega, a zone located in the west of the country that’s noted for having the country’s most beautiful beaches.

Trinidad has owned a grocery store at home for 33 years in which he sells home use products like basic grains, snacks, frozen goods, detergent, eggs, and toilet paper, among others as well as food items like cooked beans and milk curd. He has regular customers and drop-ins he sells to on credit and for cash collecting payments weekly and biweekly.

Trinidad’s customer demand is high because his store is located near a naval base and his regular customers come from there. He also sells to other grocers and markets. Trinidad is a responsible man; he’s never missed a payment.

One of his goals is to improve the business and attain economic stability and also to do some home improvements. This loan’s objective is to invest in the grocery store with the purchase of products like basic grains, detergents, frozen goods, perishables, snacks and eggs, among others.

Trinidad is very grateful to all Kiva lenders who provide help to low-income people from poor countries.
