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

A loan helped to help his son overcome his respiratory illness by replacing the dirt floor and finish the walls of his house.

Pedro's story

Pedro and his wife Ivonne own a local convenient store in El Seco in the Mexican state of Puebla. They have been living in their house for over 37 years. It first started as a single room and gradually it has grown to accommodate the family. However, the kitchen and the kids bedroom still has a dirt floor since a rooms and bathrooms were a priority during the last construction work. One of their kids has presented some respiratory illness and the doctor says having a clean house with the least amount of dust possible is essential.

To do so, they need to build a proper floor as soon as possible and that is why they are requesting this credit. They also want to finish off the walls so they can avoid the wind and water coming through the cracks.

Their store is an informal business and income is not guaranteed, so access credit from other institutions is very difficult. Pedro and Ivonne will receive technical assistance and supervision from certified technicians that will make sure the constructions meets all quality and safety standards. Pedro and Ivonne are looking forward to do this final improvements to their home and provide their family with a better health and a better life.
