Vicente Saúl
Vicente, 30, is married and has two children. For the past ten years he has worked as a mason. He was interested in this work because his uncle is also a mason.
Once he was able to do the work he decided to construct a house by himself. This is how he learned the trade.

The loan requested by Fundación Campo is to buy 150 blocks, 10 bags of cement and with the rest of the credit to cancel the laborers that are unskilled to raise the roof in his kitchen.

He needs to raise the roof since it is now very low and sometimes water seeps through. The situation is worrisome and with the loan he will live better and more comfortably.

Also it will improve because it will not be as hot in the kitchen when cooking.

He plans to build a retention wall because in the back on the house the wall is too close and when it rains hard the ground loosens and damages the wall.

Vicente tiene 30 años de edad, es casado y tiene dos hijos. Desde hace 10 años es albañil, a él le llamo la atención este oficio pues su tío se dedica a esto mismo. Cuándo ya podía hacer el trabajo decidió construir una casa por si solo y fue como aprendió el oficio.
El préstamo que esta solicitando Fundación Campo, es para comprar 150 bloques, 10 bolsas de cemento y con el resto del crédito cancelar la mano de obra no calificada, para levantar el techo de su cocina. La necesidad de levantar su techo; ya que está muy bajo y a veces se le filtra el agua y es preocupante su situación por lo tanto con el crédito vivirá mejor tendrá más comodidad. Además, mejorara porque ya no sufrirán tanto calor a la hora de estar cocinando. Él pretende construir un muro de retención porque en la parte de atrás de su casa el paredón está muy cerca y cuando llueve fuerte se desprende tierra y le daña la pared.
