A loan of $500 helped put up a roof on the home extension.


Marcial's story

I bought my home more than a year ago. There was only one room at first, but little by little my wife and I have worked together and put up walls for two more rooms, but by the hand of fate we were not able to finish. We have three children, and a home with only one room is too small for our family. Which is why I'm requesting a loan of $500 so we're able to put up a roof over the two rooms so we can live more comfortably.

Tengo mas de un año que adquirí la vivienda era solo un cuarto cundo no la entregaron poco a poco mi esposa y yo hemos juntado para hacer los muros de dos cuartos pero por cosa del destino no hemos podido terminarla, tenemos 3 hijos y la casa de un cuarto es demasiado pequeña para la familia. Por lo cual estoy solicitando un préstamo de $ 500.00 dlls para poner el techo de lamina a los dos cuartos para que pueden tener mejor comodidad.
