Mario Alberto's story

Sr. Mario lives in the town of Ticuantepe and works as a motorcycle taxi driver. His greatest wish is to have better living conditions and to make improvements to his house. Mario’s greatest challenge is being able to raise all of the money that is required to take care of the constant household expenses.


With the loan being provided, Mario will be able to fulfill part of his dream. He will buy building materials such as blocks, cement, sand, and zinc so that the work can begin. Mario hopes to always have the support of AFODENIC and Kiva funds.
