A loan of $375 helped repair the roof of his house.


Efrain's story

Bertha Abelia Rodríguez, wife of Efraín L., appears in the photo.

For 13 years Efraín López E. has been buying and selling old iron to support his family. In order to help him with the family expenses, his wife sells used clothes at a well known flea market in the city. They have always gotten ahead in spite of the crisis. They want to continue putting forth great effort in order to give their children a better quality of life.

Now he would like to repair the roof of his house. There is a crack inside where water leaks when it rains. He does not want his furniture to be ruined. Above all, he wants to give his family a house that is in good condition.
