A loan of $850 helped to buy a range hood and ventilation duct.


Mario's story

Mario is very entrepreneurial and also always has been characterized for being a fighter in life. Many years ago he used to generate earnings as a truck driver but this was not enough to sustain his family. Because of this, one day he decided to start up a business that he wanted. It was in this way that he began his food stall, cooking in a vehicle located outside his house. Thanks to his efforts and extensive hours working after three months he has been able to locate his stall in a locale of the area and from there offer better service to his customers since he now has better equipment to prepare his food.

As everything was going well for him, he has to move to a new locale and now is there working hard to continue moving his business forward and continue generating earnings to offer his family a good quality life. In order to be able to fulfill a requirement from the health authority, Mario is seeking a loan to buy a range hood and ventilation duct.

His dream is to be able to improve his business more everyday and save money that he needs to buy his own house where he could offer his family a more stable home.
