A loan of $475 helped to sell food.

Bismark Antonio's story

Bismark Antonio lives in the city of Managua and works in a supervisory company. He is married and has three children. His income is the family's only source of income.

Bismark is requesting a loan from Kiva and Ceprodel to invest in a business selling food in his home at night. In Nicaragua, this is known as "venta de fritanga".

He wants to carry out this project to improve his family income, and his wife is going to manage the business. He trusts in God that his business will be prosperous, because the income from his salary alone allows him to cover some expenses, but is not enough to make his family comfortable.
