Mauricio Ebigail's story

Mauricio is 37 years old and lives with his life partner. He has two children, one is 5 and the other is 3. Mauricio is an agricultural worker who learned this work from his father 15 years ago. His wife has been making chocolate for years. She makes 5lbs twice a week and sells them for $15 each. She buys her materials in a city which is 15km from their home.

Mauricio is requesting a loan to buy materials for building a kitchen. He will buy 15 meters of corrugated metal, 5 pieces of lumber, 50lbs of iron and 2 bags of cement. He will also pay workmen. This investment will enable him to build the kitchen that he so needs so that he can keep his food in better conditions because, right now, his kitchen is in the open air.

In the future, Mauricio would like to have a house with three bedrooms because his children are growing and need privacy.
