Carlos's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy sand, cement, brick, and iron, and to pay for labor.
Carlos is 54 years old and lives in his own home with his mother and his life partner. He makes a living selling dairy products, and his wife sells tortillas. With the money they earn, they are able to keep moving forward. He wants to improve his house by constructing a wall in the location shown in the photo. Since he doesn't have enough capital, he is requesting a loan to buy sand, cement, bricks, and iron, and to pay for labor, so that he and his family can live more securely and comfortably.
