Mariano's story

Mariano lives in the Las Canoas district outside Teustepe. He is married and the father of six children, ages 13, 11, and 2. Two of the children attend elementary school, and his oldest son enjoys singing Christian music.

Mariano sells CDs and DVDs as a street vendor, and he has been in business for more than 10 years. He supports his family by selling music CDs and movies. He wants to add new inventory and needs a loan to buy CDs, DVDs, and sunglasses. He most wants to give his children a good education. To that end, he strives to sell new products so that he can increase income and give his family a better life.
