Gerardo Mauricio's story

Gerardo is a 35-year-old man. He lives with his wife and their two children. His parents helped him, setting up two rooms for him to live with his new family. That way, he avoids paying rent. Gerardo works as a driver and his wife takes care of the house and the children. She also wants to help with the household expenses, and that is why Gerardo wants to help her with a shed to raise chickens in. That is why he is asking for a loan to buy plastic, mesh and poles to make the shed. The rest will be to buy the chickens, corn and balanced feed to raise them. In this way, they aspire to keep fighting together to own their own home and educate their children, which is the most important thing for Gerardo and his wife.
