Nicaragua
Managua, Nicaragua / Personal Housing Expenses

A loan of $500 helped to purchase doors and windows to finish his house.


Alberto Alonso's story

Don Alberto has worked as a taxi driver for five years. Previously he had only worked in welding, which he has done for 22 years, but sometimes this provides him greater earnings than the taxi, because the roads are bad. Also, many people opt for the bus route because of the low cost. Due to the fact that many people are unemployed, salaries are low and the economy has greatly affected the country. Don Alberto is 49 years old and lives together with his wife and children. His plans are to finish his house with concrete, and he is content because through a lot of effort with his two jobs, he has managed to make it look really nice already. With this loan he wants to purchase windows and doors to be able to completely seal it and enjoy his new house. He is grateful to this institution for the support in attaining a decent home for his family.
