Una Luz En Tu Camino Group's story

Marcio is 38 years old and is the father of three children. He is a cabinet-maker by profession.

When he was 23 years old and looking to help his mother financially, he was given the opportunity to work as a cabinet-maker's assistant in a workshop where he was able to learn the trade well. During that time when he was working with his income, he was able to buy some tools. Two years ago, he managed to go out on his own and open a workshop in his house. When he was in other people's workshops, they paid him whatever they wanted and sometimes he had to work contract jobs to make ends meet, but no matter what he had to rent his tools and his earnings were affected by that. Nevertheless, this allowed him to get the customers that he still has. He did custom work for customers who are living out of the country and this was better for him.

With the funding granted him by Fundenuse, he has been able to buy the necessary tools for his work. His future goal is to have his workshop complete with all of the tools that he needs to do his work. He is requesting a Fundenuse loan with Kiva funding to buy raw materials to make his products.

He belongs to the solidarity group called Una luz en tu camino [A Light on Your Path] together with Vivian, who sells used clothing, and Elsa, who has a small grocery store.
