Jhonny Richard's story

The young Jhonny is 32 years old and is the father of a family with two children. It has not been easy for him to build his house completely of concrete; only the first part is made of stone, and then it is zinc, since he has few economic resources. His wife works as a cook to help pay the basic expenses of water and light. He works as a security guard, and although his salary is low, it is regular, which allows him to feed his children. His goal is to have a safe and worthy house for his children. He hopes to improve his house through this financing, since it is a viable way to make progress on the infrastructure. This loan will be used to change the roof, since it is very old and it leaks, and this causes him to worry about the health of his children. For this work, he will buy zinc, wood, and nails, among other items, to make the change.
