A loan of $975 helped to buy stone, cement, sand, and iron to make a wall.


Mario Alberto's story

Señor Mario Alemán has been a security guard for more than 14 years. He hasn't been able to find a job where he can earn more money because with the little that one knows, it is difficult, and jobs are scarce. The saddest thing is that with the changes in government, various changes have happened, and he's afraid that he will lose his job, and he depends on his salary. He is 40, and he and his wife have one 17-year-old daughter who studies in secondary school. He hopes that he will be able to help pay for this although it's very expensive. They live in Laureles Sur. With this financing, he will be able to buy stone, cement, and iron to make a wall so they will have better security against the delinquency that threatens the country day after day and so their family can have better living conditions.
