Melquiades

Melquiades is 40 years old and he lives alone, having been divorced from his partner. But he helps to support their 4 children, Tania who is 13, Joel who is 6, Neftali who is 4, and Jose who is 3 years old. Being a laborer has brought him many benefits, especially because it helps him support his children, all of whom need his care. Melquiades has carried out his occupation for the past 5 years. The hardest part about his job is that is it not steady employment, but ready sporadic. After he completes a construction project there is a lapse of time he is without work. It is in those times that he decided to do carpentry to supplement his income. Melquiades is currently on the second cycle of his first loan with Microfinanzas Prisma and he is very punctual with his payments. With the funds from this loan he will purchase tools for his work as a laborer and as a carpenter, so that he may build a better future.
