Marío Salome's story

Don Mario is 49 years old and has three children, but he lives with two of them along with a daughter-in-law and a grandson. For the past 11 years, he has been providing his service as an operator at a grain mill. Mario also works as a farmer and has the help of two of his children.


The loan he is requesting will be used to buy materials for the construction of his home. He wants to install a floor in his home. By investing in his house, Mario will have a home that is more secure, comfortable, and cleaner for his entire family. His wish is to have his own grain mill so that he does not have to work for another person.
