Carlos Mario's story
Carlos lived with his father in Magdalena, and there they worked together in a company that manufactured and sold mops and brooms. The company had an accident in which a large part of the merchandise was burned. What little they were able to recover they took with them to Medellín, and there they began again with the business. With broken hopes but a strong heart, they were able to build up the business yet again. Carlos' father passed away four years ago, leaving behind the business and all of his knowledge with Carlos. Since then he has worked constantly in his business and is always looking ahead toward his dreams. He is requesting a loan to buy raw materials used to make mops such as wood and fabric. With these materials he will be able to fund his business and will have greater production.
