Alejandro Adolfo
View original language description ↓
Alejandro lives in the municipality of Veracruz. He is 31 years old, married, has two children in elementary school and his wife is a housewife. Alejandro is a bus driver with 11 years of experience. He started in that line of work with the support of his parents. He wants to provide a better life for his family and says that because he’s young, he has to work hard for them.

The loan that he is requesting is for purchasing construction materials to add a porch onto his home to begin to improve it little by little. He hopes to be able to see his home finished and his family living in a decent house.
