A loan of $725 helped buy construction materials such as stone, sand, cement, and boards to be able to finish a room.


Silvio Antonio's story

Don Silvio is the father of a family with three beautiful children. He and his wife hope to succeed in giving them a good education. He is 41 years old. His wife works selling cellular phones to cover the costs of water and light, among other things, since everything has gone up in cost.


He works as a gasoline pump technician. He has been working in this business for two years, but he has worked at the same job in past years. When he was unemployed, he sold cellular phones to be able to feed his family. With his previous loan he was able to begin building the room but he did not finish it due to lack of capital. For this reason, he will buy construction materials such as stone, sand, cement, and boards to be able to finish the room and a wall that he also wants to make, since what he has now is made of wood and is already very old and in bad condition. Thanks to the instituiton for its support in making this improvement in his home and for the approval of more capital, which he is waiting for to finish the work he began.
