A loan of $375 helped purchase of tomatoes for resale.


Alvaro José's story

In The Terminal Market, in the city of Leon, Nicaragua, Mr. Alvaro C. sells vegetables. His specialty is the sale of tomatoes. He has been successful with this, in spite of the fact that the selling conditions are not optimal. He has set up some shade to protect the merchandise from the sun, and this has helped him with his sales.

One of the main factors in his success is the support he has received from the Ceprodel agency, which up until now has made him 14 loans, all of which have been repaid successfully. He now is requesting an additional working capital loan, to allow him to buy more tomatoes wholesale and thus continue his business.
