Mario Antonio's story

Mario Antonio R. is 56 years old and resides in Lourdes Colón, located in the Department of La Libertad. He lives with his wife who helps with the business. Together they have two children who are in school and also work with the family business.


Mario runs a bakery that is located in his house. From this place he sells most of the bread that he produces. He bakes French bread, which is known in this country as baguettes. Mario also makes sweet bread together with his family day after day. Many customers come to his home to buy bread in bulk in order to stock their stores.


Mario is requesting a loan so that he will have the necessary funds to buy flour in bulk, eggs, butter, yeast, and other supplies needed for baking bread. This is a very productive business for Mario, which allows him to support his family.
