Juan's story

Juan S. has been a successful micro-entrepreneur, selling fruit in his small community of Casa Colorá. He lives with his wife and young child in a run-down house made of wooden planks. The house is falling apart and it is unsafe and uncomfortable. Juan is in the process of building a new house for his family out of cement blocks.

Hurricanes and tropical storms are very common in the Dominican Republic and houses made of wood are swept away every time. With a house made out of cement, Juan and his family can weather the storm safely. Funding this loan will allow Juan and his family to be safe and secure in their home.
