Erasmo Antonio
Erasmo Antonio is 29 years old and lives in the San Salvador Department, along with his wife and children, ages 5 and 4. He has a carpentry shop, collocated within his home, where he works in the evenings and on weekends. This demonstrates that Ernesto is a hard working young man who toils day and night for the well-being of his family, despite him having to put in double the effort. He works as an employee at another carpentry shop, Monday through Friday, where he attends to customers.

Erasmo is requesting this loan so that he can replace the adobe walls in his home with cinder block, since the strong rains last winter caused his walls to deteriorate. He would like to have his new walls installed before the rainy season begins so that his wife and children can feel more secure.

Erasmo is an example of enterprising and dedication, as he works diligently to get ahead.
