Juan Alexander's story

Juan Alexander is single and lives in Chinandega in the western part of the country, an area known for commerce, tourism, and its beaches. He is a small business owner who sells general merchandise like clothing, shoes, perfumes, cosmetics, fabrics, decorations, knick knacks, plastic goods and other things. He makes his purchases in bulk in other towns, in cash. He sells for cash or credit to fixed and occasional customers. He starts his work day very early, walking around various neighborhoods and towns in Chinandega.

This new loan will be used to increase his inventory and take advantage of the sales this month, which are higher because the Christmas season is coming. He already has several orders from his customers. Juan is very grateful for the support that the Kiva lenders give to people of low economic resources.
