Yulber's story

Yulber is 32 years old; he lives with his wife and his 3 year old son. For a short while now he has been working in the production of adobe bricks. He started the business when he realized that many people have begun construction on their homes. His brick sales increase the family's income. He makes the bricks in an area alongside his home without having to spend the day at a distance from his family. He enjoys his work because since he was a boy he has liked and been interested in the production of bricks. Now he hopes that the business goes very well for him, even though he sometimes has to battle with the rains and the blazing afternoon sun that makes his work tiring.Yulber has a family to support; they are the motivation for his arduous work. The loan will be invested in the purchase of wood to make a large quantity of molds for brickmaking. He has hope that this new business will open new roads for his family's progress.
