Jose Dolores's story

Jose Dolores Z. M. is 56 years old and lives in the Medardo Andino neighborhood. He is married, and his wife is a cashier. They have one child at home; previously, they had two more in their care, but those children grew up and became independent, so the couple are now taking care of only the youngest. Currently, the boy is studying, but he is also working to contribute to the household expenses. The family's central plan is to make improvements to their home, in order to raise their quality of life. Jose has earned a living as a mason for 20 years. Among the main difficulties he has faced are the asthma attacks he suffers, which affect him most strongly when he is at home. This is due to the impoverished conditions he lives in, which increase his risk of having more frequent asthma attacks. For this reason, the family is requesting the current loan in order to carry out remodeling work in their home. The loan will be used to purchase construction materials to begin remodeling the open areas of their home. This will help keep Jose healthy and give his family more peace of mind.
