A loan of $1,075 helped to buy sand, cement, and rods.


Osman Orlando's story

Osman lives with his wife and son in a small town within Santa Cruz de Yojoa, which is a community in the central region of Honduras. For over three years he has worked in a factory in Villanueva, earning minimum wage and conducting his work efficiently.

Osman is requesting a loan to buy sand, cement, rods, and more, which he needs to construct his own house. He hopes that the loan helps greatly since he does not yet have the necessary funds to build a room. He hopes to finish this project and give his family a decent home, as this has been his biggest dream. He bought the land with great effort, and now he needs to finish building his house.

Santa Cruz de Yojoa, Honduras – February-2017.
