Mario's story

Sr. Mario lives in his own home in the Nuevo El Carmen neighborhood of La Guardia, which is 18km from the city of Santa Cruz. His main business activity is working in construction as a mason. His wife sells clothing as a street vendor to help with the finances. Mario started working as a mason five years ago when he came here to live from Chuquisac, where the Bolivian capital is located.

The loan he is requesting will be used to remodel his home which is in poor condition. Mario is grateful to Emprender for the support that has been provided. He has four school age children, so it is difficult for his family to get ahead on his income. Therefore, both he and his wife must work to support their family.
