Juan De Dios
View original language description ↓
Juan is 50 years old. He lives in the Laureles neighborhood and is married. Juan and his wife have two children, ages 13 and 17. His wife works and helps cover household expenses. Juan works for a private security company as a security guard.

The loan Juan is requesting is for finishing construction of a wall around his house. The wall will provide better security for his family, as their neighborhood isn’t very safe. Juan hopes to complete construction of his house so that his children one day will benefit from the property.
