A loan of $850 helped raise a wall and install a door.

Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis is 32 years old and single, but lives in a free union with the mother of his 4 year old child, who currently attends preschool. Jose Luis has worked as a driver for the MINSA del Rama for 9 years. He is asking for refinancing on his sixth loan so he can renovate his living quarters. He stays at his parents' house in a small room in the garage. He wants to take out the main doors and raise the walls so there is room to construct a door that leads directly to the street as well as seal the door that connects his quarters to those of his mother's in attempt to try and make his family more independent. Jose Luis' biggest dream is to be able to have a place where he can be near his family, their basic living conditions are met, and that his son grows up in a happy environment.
