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

A loan helped to buy construction material.

Crispin's story

Crispin is 41 years old. He is single, lives alone and is employed by a company for four years.

Crispin lives in a remote location and he has to travel a long way to get to work. He is requesting a loan to buy construction material to improve his home. The citizens of La Paz have experienced violence, pillaging and vandalism due to the political situation in Bolivia. Crispin wants to avoid potential future risks.

He may also resell some of the materials to others so that they can build higher walls due to the political unrest.

At the time he is making this request, it appears that the situation in Bolivia is becoming more normal.
