Roger Basilio
Young Roger is a long-time Emprender customer who has worked with the institution for five loan cycles. He works in a carpenter's shop where he sells his labor and charges by the number of doors he produces. Roger is single and is taking college courses to be a veterinarian. Thanks to the working capital that was lent to him, Roger says that he is able to work more efficiently

He lives in the southern end of the city, in his family's house with his mother and siblings, and gives his earnings to them. Roger will use the loan money to buy a circular saw and tools that will help him to do his work. He is an enterprising young man with a desire for self-improvement, and he is very grateful for the opportunity you offer him.
