A loan helped to buy construction materials.


Ernesto's story

Ernesto is a 33-year-old gentleman who lives common-law in his own house. He has been an electrician for 20 years. He is the father of 3 children, who are 12, 10 and 6 years old, all attending primary school.

This is his second loan, and it is intended for the purchase of building materials such as sand, cement and bars, for continuing the work on his home. He says that the previous loan was used for the same residential construction work.

He dreams of seeing his home completed so as to give comfort to his family.
