Mauricio Antonio
Mauricio Antonio hails from the town of El Sauce. A young man of 32 years of age, he is single and lives with his mother. He has endured many a hardship, since his family is poor and, to help his mother, he had to emigrate to Guatemala to find work and save money to buy a tricycle taxi, which he used to provide transportation services to the people of the town and thus support his household. Maurice's lot in life, and his economic opportunities, were much improved by a loan that enabled him to buy a mototaxi. He keeps providing transportation services in his town, but can now also bring fares to various remote villages sorely in want of a regular bus service. Mauricio needs a loan to buy tires as well as tarp for his vehicle in order to improve it and thus provide a better service to his customers, since the rainy season is rearing its head. He puts his hopes and his trust in God that Kiva lenders, through Ceprodel, grant him the money he needs to invest in his business.

Mauricio Antonio es originario del municipio de El Sauce, es un joven de 32 años de edad, soltero que habita al lado de su madre.
Ha sido muy sufrido ya que proviene de una familia muy pobre y que para ayudarle a su madre ha tenido que salir fuera del país hacia Guatemala a trabajar y recoger para comprar un tricitaxi y así brindar servicio de transporte a los pobladores de dicho municipio con el fin de ganar para el sustento de su hogar.
Así inició Mauricio pero hace dos años le financiaron para una mototaxi con el fin de tener un mejor desarrollo económico.
Con esta mototaxi brinda el mismo servicio a los pobladores, además viaja a las diferentes comarcas más alejadas donde no entran los buses.
En este momento necesita un crédito para la compra de llantas y carpa para mejorar las condiciones de la misma y así brindar un mejor servicio a sus clientes, además que viene la temporada de lluvia.
Espera y confía en Dios que los inversionistas de Kiva a través de Ceprodel le aprueben su solicitud para llevar a cabo su inversión.
