Sr. Jhonny has a young son who is temporarily living with him. He is separated from the mother of his child. A few years ago, he picked up another trade and now works as a masonry assistant. Jhonny gained considerable knowledge in this field, which helped with the construction of his own home. However, due to financial reasons, he was not able to finish building his house. For this reason, he is requesting a loan so that he can finish the construction of his home and have his own roof under which he can have better living conditions.
