A loan of $1,500 helped to invest in mirrors and decorative picture frames.

Mario Abel's story

Mario lives in the Georgina Andrade neighborhood, a place where inhabitants have very few resources. He and his wife are looking for ways to get ahead and provide their children, who are 10 and 12 years old, the opportunity to study.

Mario works selling mirrors and decorative picture frames, which are seen commonly in Nicaraguan homes. He buys them already manufactured and he resells them. He requests the support of a loan so that he may invest in his business, since this is his only means of income to provide sustenance for his family.
