Magdaleno's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase cement, iron, sand, wood, etc. to finish building his house. He will also use it to pay an assistant to help him with the work, which he will take part in as he is a mason worker.
Magdaleno is 48 years old and studied through eighth grade. He began his schooling at age 10, as there were no schools near where he lived when he was growing up, so it wasn't until he moved to a different area that he could begin his studies. The mother of his children left them to to go abroad, so he only he was left to raise them. Magdaleno is a farmer, which he has done for over 30 years. His father taught him this skill and to how be a good member of society. He also does mason work, although the work is only occasionally available, as the area is pretty much solely devoted to agriculture. He walks to work, which is close to his home. He works alone from 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The loan he is requesting from CREDICAMPO is to purchase cement, iron, sand, wood, etc. to finish building his house. He will also use it to pay an assistant to help him with the work. The improvement will give him the satisfaction of finishing what he started, and to finish this much needed improvement at home. He always wants to provide for his children’s needs, and for them to study and become successful, which is why he hopes to always be working as long as God provides him with health and life. The loan will help to purchase the materials he needs to do this.
