Juan Carlos's story

Juan is in a relationship and has a son. His partner takes care of the home.

Juan has made bricks since he was 16 years old. He learned the trade from his father. His brick business is at his house, and he works from 7:00 to 11:00 in the morning. He also raises pigs, helped by his partner. In addition, he has experience raising cattle and farming.

Juan will use the loan to buy dirt and molds in order to make and sell bricks. He will also pay workers to do this work. His dream is to always give the best to his family.
