Raul's story

Raul is a hardworking and determined man. Originally from Puerto Cabezas, he is 42 years old, married, with three children. Two are adolescents in primary school, and one is one and a half years old.

Thirteen years ago he started a small general store for the purpose of having his own source of income, and so his wife could help him tend to the business.

He requests funding to buy staple foods, cleaning supplies, sanitary pads, toilet paper, vegetables, and fruits in Managua, and sell them at affordable prices in the city of Puerto Cabezas. His dream is to buy a truck to reduce the transportation costs of the products he offers.
