La Paz, Bolivia / Construction

A loan of $1,000 helped build a retaining wall to stabilize the floor of their house.


Francisco's story

Francisco H. lives with his wife and two children in his own house in the Pasankeri area on the hillside to the west of La Paz. Francisco is a builder, and he does bricklaying work in private houses. His wife is a domestic employee. Their income supports the family.

The requested loan is to build a retaining wall to stabilize the floor of their house and not run the risk of cracks and sliding.

This is the eighth time he has asked for a loan. The completed evaluation qualifies him for the loan.
