Alexis Manrique
Alexis is 29 years old and unmarried. He has been working for the water utility company for eight years. He has a lot of experience and has learned a good deal from his work colleagues. Before starting his job at the water company, he completed his high school degree. He gets up every day at 4 a.m. to get ready for work. He starts work at 7 a.m. and walks 40 minutes to get there.

He is requesting this loan from Fundación Campo to buy sand, cinder blocks, and cement and pay labor costs to build a room on his house because he plans to have his own family in the future. Once he has built the extra room, he will be much more comfortable, since his house is very small and he feels that he doesn't have enough space. It will also give him a place to share with his wife.

He plans to keep working hard to pay off his debt to Fundación Campo so he can take out another loan and do improvements on his whole house.

Alexis tiene 29 años de edad, es soltero. Tiene 8 años trabajando en la administración de agua potable, posee mucha experiencia, tarea que la aprendió de sus compañeros de trabajo; ya que al terminar el bachillerato ingreso a trabajar en la bomba de agua antes de trabajar ahí era estudiante. Se levanta todos los días a las 4:00 a.m. para prepararse e irse a su trabajo, entra a las 7:00 a.m, y camina a pie 40 minutos para llegar.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para comprar arena, bloque, cemento y pago de mano de obra y construir una habitación, porque piensa en un futuro tener su propia familia. Al tener construido su habitación estará mucho mas cómodo, ya que su casa es pequeña y siente que no tiene su espacio, a la misma vez ya tener un lugar donde compartir con su esposa.

Desea seguir trabajando fuerte para honrar la deuda que adquirió con la Fundacion Campo y así poder sacar un nuevo préstamo y mejor toda su casa.
