Mario Antonio's story

Santa Rosa del Peñón is a small town with many commercial and agricultural characteristics. This is where young Mario Antonio lives. Mario Antonio’s the name of this young 24-year-old married man with two children in his care. His wife’s a merchant and has a small grocery store. With the little she earns she helps with the family’s daily sustenance but one of his dreams is to live in a better house and provide his son with a better roof.

He’s presented with the opportunity of getting to know Ceprodel and Kiva and to realize that they help his type of person. Facing the great need of improving his house, he’s asking for a loan to buy cement and sand and to pay labor costs. It would be among his great dreams to plaster the walls of his house that have been damaged by natural causes.
