A loan of $975 helped to purchase ceramics and paint to improve his home.

Elias Francisco's story

Señor Elías, age 37, is dedicated to succeeding in his goal of improving his dwelling in order to give his family a dignified home. He is married, and he and his wife have four children who are in elementary school.

Several years ago, Don Elías qualified as a lawyer and notary public. He works as a legal adviser in the city hall of Villa del Carmen. For the future, he plans to be able to have his own office where he can obtain better benefits and income and develop his skills.

He has succeeded in building a concrete house, but he still doesn’t have paint and has not installed ceramic tiles. With this loan he will be able to buy ceramics and paint in order to begin the work for which he has already purchased some of the material. He is pleased with the benefits he has acquired.
