Cruz's story

Cruz is one of those men who loves to protect his family. He is married and has a lovely family with six children between the ages of 4 and 16. They live in a community called Nahuala. Cruz devotes himself to two business activities so that his family will not be in need. His first job is working as a bricklayer, which he has been doing for 20 years. It is his biggest source of income. His second business activity is working as a tailor. In his free time he is in a musical group. With this effort that he makes day to day his family has gotten ahead.

For a long time Cruz has worried that his family does not have a decent house. In spite of all of his efforts, it has not been possible for him to build his house. Therefore, in order to now be able to do that and make this necessity possible, he has decided to request a loan. He will use the loan to buy cement, lime powder, sand, iron, and cement blocks.

Cruz puts forth great effort in his work day after day in order to be able to make his loan payments and to build his house before the end of the year. He does this so that his family will have a decent house. He also dreams of buying a car.
