Juan's story

Mr. Juan P. C. has worked for some time trying to finish building a room and a bathroom in his home. He has financed the construction with savings from his job and from his wife's business. She works making and selling nopalitos (a dish made with the prickly pear fruit), seeds, and donuts in order to improve the family income and help her husband. They would like to finish the rooms in their home soon as they are needed for the family. Remedios, Juan's wife, is very pleased with the project since she asked her husband for some time to construct a better bathroom than the one they currently have. Currently, the project is half-finished but they ran out of materials and savings; this is why they are requesting a loan in order to finish the bathroom that Remedios has dreamed of.
