José's story

Mr. José M. has just received a home as part of a Government grant. The house is still in need of a few improvements, and José would like to start by building a fence around it. At the moment his home is not a secure place for his family, and he fears for the safety of his young daughter. In order to build the fence he is asking for a loan to purchase the materials and labor. When we visited his home, Mr. José was at work and his wife, Mrs. Sandra de la Paz, welcomed us. She is in the person in the photo.
