Alex's story

Alex is single and has no children. He lives in his parents' house in a zone that is far from the city. Since he was a teenager, he has worked with his father in construction.

He is the oldest of four siblings so he has had to help his parents quite a bit with expenses. As they recently moved from the city, he even worked with his father to build their house.

Alex studies and works at the same time because his parents' income is not adequate to cover the cots of the studies of all the children. Alex learned a lot about construction work. He hopes that soon he will get contracts of his own. For that reason, he needs a loan to buy equipment and carpentry tools so that he can carry out more jobs and have a better income to improve the quality of life of his family.

Alex works days and studies at night at the institute to get a technical title. That way, he will be able to get more work and have more income. Alex has also been helping his mother who is in poor health. The income of his father is not sufficient on its own to cover the medical costs. For this reason, he helps with the payment of those costs.
