Elisio's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy construction materials.

Elisio's story

Mr. Elisio is 47 years old, a transport assistant, married, and the father of 5 children- all of whom are studying and live in his own home.

He says that with this loan he intends to buy cement, blocks, sand, and stone to finish the construction of his bathroom.

It is his 7th loan; he applied the previous ones to the construction of his home. His dream is to have a stable life and to finish building his home to give comfort to his family.
