Purchases of telephones abroad fell 32%, while imports of refrigerators fell 38%. See foreign trade report by the Central Bank.

Laprensa.com.ni reports that “…Economists fear that the lesser demand for these items at the local level is because people have reached their limit in terms of debt or because the improvement in purchasing capacity this year has not been substantial.”
