Theodoro is an enthusiastic man with a sharp business mind. He operates a restaurant and a small store on a bustling street corner in Waslala, Nicaragua. Theodoro also owns a butchering business and sells fresh meat in the community.
Through the loans Theodoro received from the SALT microloan program, he was able to expand his small businesses, and now he can better provide for his family. But even more than the loans, he values the Bible-based teaching he receives at weekly SALT meetings.
“The spiritual teaching is the most important,” he said. “If we are without God, we don’t have anything.”
Like Theodoro, many other able-bodied people in impoverished countries want to provide for themselves but need help to get started. If you wish to help people help themselves, please choose from the options below.
