Osvaldo Antonio's story

Osvaldo lives with his partner and their baby daughter who was born seven months ago. He doesn't have family members living abroad.

Osvaldo owns an artisanal mud brick manufacturing businesses. He learned the trade form his grandfather, who also used to work in that line of business. Osvaldo works Monday through Friday and his schedule is from 3:00 am to 10:00 am. His main disadvantage is that production decreases during the winter time.

Osvaldo is requesting a loan because he needs working capital to strengthen his business inventory. The borrowed funds will be used to buy soil, straw, sand, and other supplies to improve brick production. He hopes the investment will allow him to cover the orders his customers will make.

His dream is to expand his business and improve his financial situation so that he can give his daughter better living standards.
