A loan of $1,025 helped to buy brushes and paints in different colors.


Mario's story

Sr. Mario is 49 years old and has three children (ages 21, 19, and 16), all of whom are in school. He works in the construction sector on various projects in which he handles the interior and exterior painting. This loan is his first transaction with Emprender.

Sr. Mario will use the loan to buy materials, such as brushes and paints in different colors, since he is severely lacking in supplies needed to do his work. He faces challenges in the construction business, such as having to depend on other contractors to finish their jobs before he can begin painting each house. Sr. Mario will use his profits to buy tools and materials that he needs to perform a good job. This will enable him to gain more contracts so that he can earn more income.
