Esteban Guido's story

Esteban Guido is 34 years old, married and has three children. He sculpts and carves tombstones. He has been in this business for about two years, having learned the trade from friends.

A typical day for Esteban Guido is to get up very early to help with the housework since his wife also starts work very early. He then heads off to open his business and work on carving tombstones.

This is Esteban Guido's first loan. He will use it to purchase a vehicle which will help him transport his merchandise and at the same time purchase the materials he needs.

Esteban Guido's goals and aspirations with this loan are to expand his business and have more products to offer to his customers.

His goals and aspirations in life and for his family are to provide greater comfort.
