Francisco Javier
The vinyl floor in Mr. Francisco Javier P.'s house needs to be replaced with ceramic tile because it is in very bad condition and he wants his family to live in a house that has good living conditions. He is asking for this loan to buy building materials and to pay the person who will do the installation since he does not presently count with sufficient funds. Francisco is employed by a transportation company as a fork lift driver and he will use part of his salary to repay his loan.
