A loan of $625 helped purchase basic grains.


Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo lives in the Hialia IV neighborhood located in Managua. He is 29 years old and married to a sales woman who helps with the household bills. They have two children together of ages 11 and 8, both who are in school and help their father with his business. Currently, Reynaldo makes a living by running his small business that sells whole grains, tortillas, and beans. He started this business more than a year ago with the proceeds from the sale of his farm enabling him to buy a small house in the capital and establish his business. He strives to see his business grow so that he can afford home improvements. Consequently, he works with the loans that AFODENIC has given him by investing in the purchase of merchandise that will increase his sales. For this reason, he is requesting a loan of 12,0000 C for a period of 12 months in order to acquire more capital for his work, especially in these last months when the demand for his products is high.
