Dagoberto
Dagoberto is 43 years old, married, and lives with his wife and two children in San Juan Nepomuceno, within the Bolivár department. There he works in construction and has done so for 20 years. He worked for other people at first and then went out on his own and formed his own way of earning an income in order to improve the quality of life in his home. He sells for cash and works every day, buying his supplies in hardware stores and businesses that specialize in construction. He gets good prices so that he can be more competative. He buys in volume. Lately he has been getting a lot of contracts but his working capital is not sufficient to be successful, so he has requested a loan through Fundación Mario Santo Domingo, which he will use to buy building materials and be able to respond to the needs of his most faithful customers. His goal is to support his children's education so that they wil have a successful future through a quality education.
