A loan of $475 helped to buy construction materials.


Antonio's story

Antonio is a 37-year-old married man with four daughters who are 2, 8, 12, and 15 years old. He is a maintenance worker and is responsible for his mother.

With the loan, he plans to buy material such as cement, zinc sheets, beams, wire and nails to continue construction work on his house. This is his third loan, and he used the previous ones to buy a refrigerator and a television.

Antonio's dream is to continue working so he can finish his house.
