Leonel Antonio's story

Mr. Leonel is 43 years old and lives in the Villa Reconciliación neighborhood in the city of Managua. He and his wife have three children ages 9, 13 and 15, and all of them are students. His wife is the cook at a restaurant that his family owns. He is in charge of the cash register at the restaurant and also shops for the ingredients to make the food. He has had the business for eight years, which his mother-in-law started with her own money. It has been growing with everyone’s hard work, and they have succeeded in maintaining the restaurant. Mr. Leonel has borrowed eight loans from Kiva partner Afodenic. He will invest this loan in home improvements and will build a wall to provide privacy and security for his family.
