Francisco Javier
Mr. Francisco is 36 years old and is married to Cynthia (34 years old). He has worked for a well-known company for over 10 years but his low salary is not enough to cover their household expenses and the tuition of their two children: Tania, who is 16 and in her pre-university year, and César, who is 14 and in his first year of secondary education.

He is requesting a loan to waterproof his house and to paint the exterior given that, during the rainy season, the high humidity level causes the paint to fade. He is grateful for the support he might receive.
