Dagoberto's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to complete an 11 year old dream of building his family's home.

Dagoberto's story

Dagoberto has been building his house for the last 11 years, or at least attempting to. He bought materials little by little as he could but this only resulted in a lot of waste and extra expenses because when he could finally build, the conditions under which these materials were stored were not the best.

Dagoberto also hired a local builder who had very little experience - this resulted in a very long process. A couple years ago, he finally realized his mistakes and decided to put a stop to the construction and save all the funds needed.

He is now participating in a self-building program where he will not only access high quality materials at lower prices and have access to skilled labor that he can work with to build his house, but also receive a credit for the amount he is missing to finally complete this long journey and have a home. With this credit and program, he will be able to finish the walls and ceilings and all the major work the house needs. He will also receive a technical assessment to make sure the house meets all safety and quality standards.

Dagoberto and his family are eager to live in a completed house where they can all feel proud and safe.
