Mauro Antonio's story

Mauro, 49, lives with his wife and children at home. He has a tortilla business in his home and he has done this work for many years. He has earned many customers with his excellent service. He is very friendly with people who visit. He always has a smile on his face for them. His earnings help him cope with family expenses. Mauro wants to improve his home by fixing the roof, changing the doors, and painting his house. What he earns was not enough to pay for it so he applied for a loan to purchase paints, wood, and to pay laborers to improve their housing so he can live more comfortably and safely with his family.
