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

A loan helped to buy more land and firewood to continue making tiles.

Virgilio's story

Virgilio is 43 years old and has a fourth-grade education. He was unable to continue his studies due to his family's economic situation. He is married, and his wife works as a teacher. He has three children who still live at home and go to school.

Virgilio produces clay tiles, a skill he learned from his parents. He travels by car and sometimes by bus to get to his workplace, which is three kilometers from his house. His work day starts at 7:00 in the morning and ends at 2:00 in the afternoon. His oldest son helps him when he is not in class, and he also hires workers.

Virgilio needs this loan in order to buy more land and firewood to continue producing tiles.

His dream is for his children to become professionals and have better opportunities in life than he has had.
