Einar Octavio's story

You'd never know from looking at this photo that Señor Einar worked tirelessly to build the store where he's standing, which will be his livelihood from now on. He built the store using some materials that had been recycled or donated and others that he bought himself. He also built the shelves that are visible behind him in the photo that are still bare. Señor Einar is applying for a loan so that he can finish construction of the store and purchase basic grocery items to stock it. These investments will thus allow him to start fulfilling his ambition to earn a living for himself and provide for his 15-year-old daughter.
