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

A loan helped to build a roof over the front patio.

José Higinio's story

The house belonging to Jose Higinio does not have a roof over the front patio but he doesn't have the funds that he needs to carry out this improvement. He requests a loan to purchase material, such as cement, wood, steel rods, and to hire a contractor for the project. He wants it to be made of concrete because it is safer and longer lasting. He plans on paying the loan with a part of the salary he earns from his work as a transport truck driver. This is the source of income for his family. His wife, Blanca Estela, takes care of the children and the house.
