Eduardo is a brick merchant. He lives in the San Miguel de Alpacoma zone, an area that is known for having more than fifty artisanal brick factories. Unfortunately he had to emigrate to Argentina six years ago but, thanks to God, he was able to save money with which he bought a piece of property which enabled him to start his own brick business back in his own country.

Thanks to his efforts he owns a piece of property and his own home. Now he works in order to be able to finish building his house. His wife helps out with her own business selling fish in provincial markets.

Eduardo’s wish is to work day and night regardless of fatigue to have his family succeed, everything for his family’s wellbeing.

The loan was to increase his working capital buying a large amount of bricks.
