A loan of $500 helped to begin construction of a room.


Miguel's story

Señor Miguel S. needs to add a room to his house. He only has one bedroom and wishes to build a room for his children.

He is applying for a loan because he doesn’t have the money necessary to carry out the improvement. He wants to add the room as soon as possible since his children want their own space.

He plans to pay off the loan from the salary he receives from his job in the production department of a factory. His wife, Señora Jovita Acosta, will take care of the household expenses from the income she obtains from her job as the supervisor in a restaurant kitchen in a shopping center. Don Miguel wants his family to have a better place to live and wants them to be secure.
