Jose Gilberto
Jose Gilberto works as a driver for a personnel transportation company. One of his goals is to maintain his property and to build a house where it is safe to live.
Gilberto wants to build a wall, and that is why he needs the loan, since he does not have the necessary money to purchase materials - which are blocks, cement, and rods - and to pay the person in charge of making the improvement.
One of the most valuable changes for Gilberto is to keep his home protected, since he works at night and is only at home during the day. He is living alone at the moment, and therefore his house is empty at night.
