Lider Hortencio's story

Lider fabricates cultured marble and has his own shop. He lives with his wife and child in the peri-urban district of Paraíso de la Flor, located in an area known for its dirt roads and mountains.

Lider works with a person who made fiberglass and marble but wanted more income to support his family so he decided to start his own cultured marble business. At present Lider works with two people because he's very tired; he works from 10AM until they finish all the scheduled work. He works with resins and chemicals to make marble floor tiles.

He plans to use his loan to buy tools to make even more marble tiles. In the future he would like to have a gallery to display his work and sell more of it.
