Rodolfo's story

Don Rodolfo is from the ciudad of Managua. He is married and the father of two children who are now grownups. He is 52 years old. He is a businessman who makes a living selling cheeses and "tiste" [beverage made from cornmeal and cocoa powder]. He started his business when he was very young, selling cheeses and "tiste" at a popular city market. His biggest dream is to be a musician of Nicaraguan songs. His next goal is to create his own music album that is a compilation of national music.

He is requesting the loan to purchase ingredients necessary for producing the goods he sells, including tortillas, cheese, cream, and salt, among others. He thinks that the loan will be beneficial since it will increase his sales and improve his family's quality of life. His future plan is to record an album with popular Nicaraguan songs.
