Jose Dionisio's story

Jose Dionisio is an elderly single father with two young children that he still supports. He is from a northern Chinandega town located in the western part of the country, an area known for being very productive and commercial, dominated by sales of gold, livestock, pigs and other things. Jose Dionisio is a hardworking, responsible man with many desires to get ahead personally and professionally. He is a small businessman with a vehicle and tire repair shop. He gained experience by working in a mechanic shop because he didn’t have the opportunity to study for a professional career due to scarce financial resources in his home. Jose would have liked to become a professional mechanic. He has had this business for 25 years and he’s been growing it little by little. He makes his purchases in cash in other cities. One of his dreams is to have access to potable water so he can start a business washing cars, motorcycles, tricycles, etc. He will use the money from this loanto buy tires and repair supplies.
