Marvin José's story

Marvin lives in a neighborhood of Managua called Villa Reconciliacion. He is married with two children of ages 6 and 10, both of who are students. His wife is a housewife who takes care of the children and is dedicated to the home and their small market.

Because he likes music also, he sings in a bar called Chinchilla, a great place to go because of the pleasant environment. He started a market with his own money and the small savings of his wife. She has always supported Marvin so that he could achieve his goals. The purpose of this loan is to purchase inventory such as whole grains in order to offer his customers a variety of products. In the future, he would like to be able to grow his business and to be able to offer more products. In this way, he will obtain more customers.
