Mario was born in San Pedro Sula Cortes. He has two children, Esther and Albert. Mario and his children currently live in Santa Ana, Honduras.
Mario graduated from ITEE in 2000 as a computer technician. After graduation he received a job from the company he interned with in school and was very happy to receive that job. After 2 years with the company, Mario moved to New York and then to New Orleans where he worked as a carpenter. In 2005 hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans and Mario lost everything. In 2007 he moved to Mandeville, LA and met the son of Mi Esperanza co-founder Janet Hines. After meeting Richard and Janet, Mario heard about the work of Mi Esperanza in his home country. In 2011 Mario returned to Honduras, and in August of that year started working for Mi Esperanza. Mario is married and has 2 children.
We are all very excited to have Mario as part of our staff. Mario oversees the daily operation of the Mi Esperanza program with excellence and is managing the current expansion of the beauty school.
