Mario Eugenio
View original language description ↓
A business in carpentry is something that requires a lot of dedication and experience if you want to develop work/pieces that are accurately made and intricate. In the town of Cinco Pinos (city of Chinandega), Mr. Mario Lopez works at constructing furniture for the home. He works in his own shop and has managed to improve it by buying the machinery necessary in order to carry out his work.

Now, he has gone to Ceprodel to apply for a loan which will enable him to purchase more wood for the production of furniture. This business allows him to support his home's expenses and family, which consists of his wife and two children whom he loves a great deal.

Translated from Spanish by Mayra Gould, Kiva volunteer.
