A loan of $750 helped construct a wooden roof on the second floor of their home.


Baltazar's story

Señor Baltazar lives with his wife, Señora Cristina, and their little one.


He works for the judicial court as head officiate and has been for nine years. His wife, Señora Cristina, is the daycare coordinator at the most well-recognized Medical Institute in the country, where she has seniority and 28 years of experience.


They are a very economically stable family, but above all they support each other mutually and are very strong.


For the moment, they are arranging this loan because they are constructing the second floor of their home. All the construction costs they have paid with cash, but they still need to lay the wooden roof, which is their reason for this request.
