Leoncio De Maria's story

Don Leoncio is a street vendor who has been in business for over 26 years and also works as a concierge. He and his wife have been able to make some home improvements but their goal is to finish construction. With loans through Afodenic he was able to begin construction, which has advanced considerably, and the house now has a better roof for his two children who are in school. With the new loan he plans to build a wall of concrete and wood, which eventually will all be concrete. He plans to finish construction and increase his inventory for his small business.
