Gelacio's story

Gelacio lives in Xochimilco with his wife and his three kids. Gelacio makes a living by singing norteño songs at weddings, events and even for tourists who visit the famous trajineras in Xochimilco. Gelacio loves his job, although it is an informal job and limits access to loans from other institutions.

He is excited to have the opportunity to request a loan to build his house. Gelacio and Luz have lived in a temporary home for almost six years ago. It was something they thought as temporary but soon they had kids and plans did not turned out as expected.

With a previous credit from Ecoblock, Gelacio started to build this house that is the proof of hard work and hope for a better life. He has been saving to build a proper home and with this credit will install a roof on the construction so they can soon move in.

Gelacio will receive technical training and supervision to ensure that the house meets all the safety and quality standards. Gelacio and Luz have made a plan and have taken precautions they did not take before to make sure this time the plan is not derailed and they can soon move to their own home. To them, building a house is a priority for their family and the well being of their kids.
