A loan of $275 helped to buy quarry stones.

Edgardo Isaac's story

Edgardo is a young 25 year old who is married and father of a family. His son is still young, only three years old. He lives in the community of 'Las Banderas' on the outskirts of Teustepe. He makes a living selling quarry stones (stones for building houses, walls, fences). He has worked in this activity since he was 15 years old when he used to go in the truck with his father to sell. Nowadays he works alone with a rented truck, which he uses to transport and sell the stones. He has two helpers who travel with him.

He needs a loan in order to buy quarry stones wholesale. This will allow him to have a great stock and sell more and so improve his income. One of his dreams is to have his own truck and give his family a better quality of life.
