A loan of $800 helped purchasing construction materials for renovating his home.


Mario Jose's story

Mario makes a living transporting construction materials. He has his own vehicle, a twelve-wheeler dump truck, and makes two to three trips each day. He has made a living this way for two years. Mario has already worked with the Emprender organization. He lives in his parents’ house along with his three school-age children and his wife, who takes care of the children and her in-laws. Mario will use the money from the loan to purchase construction materials such as cement, corrugated metal, nails, etc. These materials are for renovating two rooms in his parents’ home, and will allow him to provide more space for his children.
