Oscar Armando
View original language description ↓
Oscar lives in the county of Jayaque in the department of La Libertad. For 15 years he has been working as a builder and this is how he has supported his wife and 2 kids. His dream is to give his family a good quality of life, but for him he will not be happy until his mother has a better quality of life, and in some way he would like to repay all the love and care that she gave to him.


Currently his mother lives in a room made of bricks and metal sheets. Her room is very small and very insecure as it is not all made of brick so lots of water gets in in winter which creates puddles in the room which attracts mosquitos and flies which carry diseases. Due to this Oscar would like a loan to make his mother's last days very happy.

Don Oscar, vive en el Municipio de Jayaque, del Departamento de La Libertad.
Desde hace 15 años trabaja en la albañilería, con dicho oficio y con el ayuda de su esposa a sacado adelante a sus dos hijos. Su mayor ilusión es brindarle una mejor calidad de vida a su familia, pero el dice que su felicidad no estará completa hasta que logre mejorar las condiciones de vida de su mamá y de alguna manera poderle retribuir todo el amor y cuidados que le brindo cuando estaba con ella.

Actualmente la mamá vive en un cuarto construido de ladrillo y de lamina metálica, este cuarto es bastante pequeño y muy inseguro, ya que por no estar construido totalmente de ladrillo filtra mucha agua en el invierno que provoca charcos dentro del cuarto que contribuyen a la ploriferación de mosquitos y zancudos, exponiéndola a enfermedades. Debido a ello Don Oscar esta solicitando un préstamo para lograr hacer ese sueño realidad y ver a su mamá viviendo felices los últimos días de su vida.
