Juan Noel
Juan Noel is married with a son in his care, to whom he provides all of his support. He has worked as a teaching advisor in the Ministry of Education of the community where his family lives for the last six years. His wife traveled to Spain to earn more in order to benefit their home, as the salary here is very low and doesn't cover their needs.

He currently needs to improve his home urgently. He therefore visited CEPRODEL to take advantage of financing for the purchase of construction materials such as iron, blocks and zinc, and to pay for labor. In this way he will benefit and also give his family better living conditions and a better standard of living.
