A loan of $1,150 helped buy timber to process.


Mario's story

Mario C. is 31 years old, separated, and lives with his two children both who are in elementary school. His business is buying timber and cutting it down into usable pieces. Additionally he makes braces and beams for houses and constructs hardwood floor for some clients. At his sawmill he has all of the tools need to work with wood.

Mario has been doing this type of work since he was young, since approximately 1998. Back the the sawmill where he works was run by his father. Nowadays they provide floors for two important companies in the city. He will use this loan to buy more wood to fulfill his commitment to the two companies.
