A loan helped with housing repairs.


Roberto's story

Roberto is 59 years old, divorced and has two older children. He currently lives only in a house that belongs to him but needs repairs. Roberto works providing various services (plumber, electrician, mason) and would like a loan to repair his house.

Roberto cannot ask for help from his children because they have their own expenses and families and one of them is not working. So Roberto hopes to be trusted; the loan will be very useful for him so that in the future he has something to leave his children.

This loan is special because:

It reaches low-income populations by not requiring collateral or co-signers.
