Byron financially supports his two daughters, Melany and Luisa, who are still in school.
Byron Toscano has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $700. Proceeds were used to purchase raw materials such as iron to increase production.
Byron creates extremely striking wrought iron crosses and home decor. Wrought iron work dates back to the colonial days in Central America and Byron incorporates many traditional techniques in his welding.
Byron has three daughters, two of whom still rely on him for care and support.
