Silvio's story

Silvio is 39 years old and works in security services. He has spent eight years getting out of debt and is happy to have a job that allows him to assist his family. Though his salary is low, it would be worse not to have this income. His wife has a small grocery store that helps with the expenses of their four children who are still students. The children help at the store with sales and deliveries during their free time.

Silvio's goal is to finish making improvements on his house. With this loan he hopes to add a room onto the back in order to give his family a little privacy. He feels very happy to achieve a new beginning thanks to this lending institution.
